Ring in the New Year

RING IN THE NEW YEAR by celebrating at the National Watermelon Drop held in downtown Vincennes! Knox County’s own quirky New Year’s event features DJ music from 10pm to 1am in a heated tent (beverages available), food vendor on site and photo opportunities with giant lighted watermelon until 11:45pm. Watch the 500-pound watermelon rise high in the sky as midnight approaches, culminating with 19 Knox County watermelons dropped on the splatform at the stroke of midnight followed by fireworks.
