Fort Wayne New Year’s Eve Ball Drop

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, I am not the kind of guy that likes to stay home, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch trying not to fall asleep before midnight. New Year’s Eve has always been this perfect culmination of looking back on the hard work of the year and ushering in hopes and dreams for next year with my closest friends. I’ve celebrated New Year’s Eve in numerous cities close to Fort Wayne from Chicago to Louisville to Cincinnati. Sadly, I have always had to leave town to really find somewhere that I felt could provide me with the opportunity to let loose and enjoy myself. This year, a new event called the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop is hoping to change that. The event will take place at the Barrett McNagny Parking Lot at 215 E. Berry Street behind Main Street Bistro in the heart of Downtown Fort Wayne. There will be a countdown featuring a gigantic Fort Wayne inspired LED Tower, and a dazzling fireworks display at midnight. This event is free and family-friendly. Doors open at 7 p.m. and live entertainment will begin at 7:15 p.m. on the countdown stage. The ball will drop at midnight kicking off the beginning of 2017. Don’t miss the chance to be there for the start of something new in Fort Wayne! If you are looking for something fun to do or want to save on the cost of travel during NYE, this might be the event you have been looking for. Main Street Bistro will also have its own event next door with tickets available for purchase online. Start making your plans now and find out all the details at fwballdrop.com. Most importantly, don’t forget to get an Uber for the drive...
