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 shoot 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.
