It's the 6th annual beach ball drop - – a glowing 800 pound LED lighted beach ball drop at midnight. The festivities begin December 31st at 5:30 p.m. and will feature a Family Celebration complete with prize drawings, stilt walkers, mascots and the kid-friendly Family Beach Ball Drop, consisting of more than 10,000 inflatable beach balls released onto Park Drive on the boardwalk.
This leads into the Midnight Celebration featuring live entertainment, fireworks and the New Year's Eve Beach Ball Drop. The headliner performance is the Barry Fish Band, known for their renditions of popular tunes from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Wherever you choose to spend your New Year's Eve on Panama City Beach, you're in for something special and memorable.
