The New Year’s Shoot is an annual tradition in Cherryville celebrating the town’s German ancestry and founders. The tradition begins with an old English chant passed down in the Beam family. Then a gun is shot under the bough of a fruit-bearing tree, hoping to bring fertility and good luck to that tree for the new year.
