What is the Pelican Drop?

The Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) is proud to offer Gulf Coast residents an exciting and unique celebration to ring in the new year.

Ring in the new year in Downtown Pensacola with The Pensacola Pelican Drop™, a free event unique to the Gulf Coast. Festivities kick off at 5 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and continue until 12:30 a.m.

Throughout the evening the giant Pelican (14 feet tall, with a 20-foot wingspan) is perched above the celebration on a 100-foot platform at the intersection of Palafox and Government Streets. Although Palafox and Government Street will be closed to traffic, area restaurants will be open and additional vendors will be providing refreshments (no alcohol sales). Live performances on three outdoor stages provide ongoing entertainment throughout the evening. The popular kids’ area will be expanded this year and will feature the special kids’ countdown at 8 p.m. with confetti and the “bubble stomp.” At the stroke of midnight, the whole city celebrates as the Pelican descends amidst fireworks and more confetti.

The event is expected to be a huge hit with over 50,000 revelers in attendance.

Tips

  1. LOCATION
    Palafox Place will close down for a massive party. Street closures begin on the morning of December 31st and continue until 1 am.
  2. PARKING
    There is plenty of handicap and regular parking in the Jefferson garage as well as the local parking lots downtown.
  3. ARRIVE EARLY FOR THE BEST VIEW OF THE PELICAN DROP
    Folks begin arriving as early as 5pm on December 31 for the family friendly events. Some of the prime viewing spots will be filled by mid-evening.
  4. HIT THE BATHROOM FIRST
    There are public portable restrooms through out the event location.
  5. FOOD AND BEVERAGES
    The local bars and restaurants will be open to buy food and drinks as well as food vendors on the streets. No coolers please.
  6. BE READY FOR CROWDS
    Approximately twenty-five thousand people will end up on Palafox Place the night of New Year’s Eve.
  7. NO ANIMALS
    Only service animals allowed.
  8. BE PATIENT AND HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR
    Your feet will get stomped on. People will block your view. Someone is bound to bump into you. Keep your cool and you (& those around you) will enjoy the New Year’s Eve Pelican Drop.
  9. CONSIDER THE WEATHER
    The weather in Pensacola on New Year’s Eve can vary widely. If it’s going to rain or be bitterly cold, you might want to consider dressing for the weather, with extra layers to add as it gets later and colder. Remember for the Ball Drop in New York City the average temperature is 28 low and 42 high compared to Pensacola’s temperature of 45 low to 63 high.
  10. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU PLAN TO ARRIVE HOME SAFELY.
