Vincennes Watermelon Drop and Fireworks
RING IN THE NEW YEAR by celebrating the fifth annual “Watermelon Drop” held in downtown Vincennes! Spectators will gather at the Riverfront Pavilion on Second & Busseron Streets to watch the 18-foot, 500-pound watermelon rise in the sky and drop twelve Knox County watermelons at the stroke of midnight to mark the year 2014. Fireworks will simultaneously mark the event. Beginning at 9:00pm (ET) spectators will gather to enjoy music, karaoke, toys and glow sticks, food, hot chocolate, noisemakers and a beer/wine garden. This year GALLEGHER will be performing (of course – why wouldn’t he be at a watermelon drop??) earlier in the day, and tickets range from $15 to $75 for that; more information on that performance, here.
Here’s the 2012 drop:
