Say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018 with a great family-friendly celebration at the New Year's Eve Beach Ball Drop in Panama City Beach on December 31st! 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 12South at 10:00pm.
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 2018 and the lowering of the huge, glowing LED beach ball to signal the start of a Happy New Year!
