There is no better way to bring in the New Year than to count down to midnight in Panama City Beach! This family friendly free event starts at 5:30pm with live entertainment from the Barry Fish Band. For families with little kiddos, there is a kids' countdown to midnight at 8:00pm where 10,000 inflatable beach balls drop from overhead nets onto the crowd while fireworks simultaneously NYE Beach Ball Drop 2014shoot off from the rooftops. 

If you are in for an all nighter - the fun continues with live music from Terry Brock & Friends followed by the RiverTown band at 10:00pm. We've made this year's New Year's Eve Beach Ball Drop even bigger with the installation of an 80ft tower that will drop a huge LED beach ball as the countdown to midnight begins. 

What would midnight on New Year's Eve be without fireworks? Enjoy a spectacular firework show from the City Pier as we celebrate the arrival of 2017.
