Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all from the Vincennes/Knox County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The New Year is quickly approaching and that means watermelons will fall from the sky! This year’s Watermelon Drop celebration will be held at the Riverfront Pavilion on the corner of 2nd and Busseron Streets. Music will begin at 9:00pm and continue until the Drop at midnight. Old Town Tavern will be serving beer and wine from 9:00pm to midnight as well. The grand finale of the event is the eleven watermelons dropping from the huge watermelon (to mark the year 2011) followed by a brief fireworks show. Souvenir t-shirts, sweatshirts, earmuffs and koozies will be for sale so bundle up and plan to attend!
