South Florida New Years Eve Drops
Times Square’s New Year’s Eve Ball Drop is a classic NYE event. But South Florida, Key West in particular, holds a couple awesome New Years Eve “drops” as well — and the weather is much better than in New York City.
If you’re in Davie or other South Florida cities and are looking for a fun way to celebrate the new year, check out one of these annual NYE drops.
Hosted at one of Key West’s most popular bars, Sloppy Joe’s Bar, is a New Years Eve party that lasts long into the night. Each year Sloppy Joe’s does a midnight “drop” of a gigantic manmade conch shell, which is the symbol of the Florida Keys.
Annual “Red Shoe Drop” is one of the most unique midnight drops held across the United States. This special New Year’s Eve drop stars, Sushi, a drag queen dressed in a vibrant, sparkling gown that sits in a supersized red high-heel shoe suspended above the crowd. Sushi presides over the festivities at the Bourbon St. Pub/New Orleans House complex on Duval St. As 2016 arrives, Sushi is lowered from a balcony in her high-heel “chariot.”
Located at the Ocean Key Resort and Spa on Duval St., is the Key lime Wedge drop. At midnight, a huge replica of a Key lime wedge splashes into a larger-than-life margarita glass as audiences welcome the new year on the property’s Sunset Pier.
Schooner Wharf Bar, located on Key West’s Historic Seaport, is the stage for a loud and very “Key West” event. While cannon blasts explode as the clock strikes midnight, a pirate wench descends 75 feet from the top of the mast of the tall ship America 2.0 at midnight.
Each year, Miami completely breaks New York’s Times Square Ball Drop and instead has a giant orange rise when the clock strikes midnight. To celebrate the event, Bayfront Park typically has a musical guest that provides a free and energetic performance to a crowd that has been estimated at 200,000 people.
