Panama City Beach New Year’s Eve at Pier Park
Panama City Beach rings in the New Year at Pier Park, where revelers gather for a wealth of live entertainment, family-friendly activities and the ball drop. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 1:00 a.m., allowing ample time to stroll Pier Park’s eclectic mix of local shops and restaurants and popular national chains. New York City may have its brightly lit ball, but a beach party calls for beach balls—10,000 of them will drop at 8:00 p.m. as a special New Year’s ball drop for kids, with fireworks immediately following. For adults, a giant 800-pound LED beach ball descends a hundred feet during the New Year’s countdown at midnight. A second fireworks show keeps the light display going. This year’s entertainment includes the popular Barry Fish Band, DJ Alex Angelo, Loud Planet, Tim Gagnon, and the Celebrity AllStars. Complimentary shuttle service is provided to Pier Park from select Sterling properties.

Destin’s 7th Annual Harbor Ball Drop
A little further west, Destin hosts its own New Year’s Eve celebration at the Harbor Walk Village beginning at 7:00 p.m. Located in the heart of Destin, this festive street party features live music, a ball drop at midnight over the Destin Harbor and two spectacular fireworks shows (8:00 p.m. and midnight). This year’s headlining concert is Departure, the nation’s top Journey tribute band.

Countdown Seaside!
The Dirty Guv’nahs will ring in 2015 at the Seaside Amphitheater on 30-A! This six-piece brotherhood from Knoxville, Tennessee, is called “a fiercely soulful band” by the Boston Globe and has been affirmed by Paste magazine to “know rock and roll from the inside out.” No strangers to Seaside, the Dirty Guv’nahs will be joined by Nashville group MamaDear as the opening act. Festivities begin at 8:00 p.m. A signature of the Seaside NYE celebration, fireworks over the Gulf of Mexico will ring in the New Year at midnight.
