New Year's Eve Beach Ball Drop
 

New Year's Eve Beach Ball Drop

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 31. The streets of Pier Park are closed off to traffic as thousands of revelers enjoy free live music, entertainment, and good cheer.

For young revelers, there's even an 8 p.m. countdown, with over 10,000 inflated beach balls dropped from nets stretched over the street, followed by fireworks.

On the way to midnight, bands perform for the gathering crowd, anticipating the countdown to 2017 when a huge, glowing beach ball is lowered to signal the start of the New Year, and another great fireworks display. Time Square has nothing on this Panama City Beach NYE party!
