Fireworks and Pelican Drop at Blue Wahoo Stadium on Dec. 31

November 30, 2017

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos will hold its inaugural Kazoo’s New Year’s Celebration at Blue Wahoos Stadium this year with the support of the City of Pensacola and the Parks and Recreation Department. The family-friendly night will feature the Pelican Drop, fireworks, inflatables, face painting and live music on the field.

The event, which is free to the public, will begin at 5 p.m. The festivities will culminate with fireworks and a Pelican drop in the outfield at 8 p.m. Local bands Rewired and The Unicorn Wranglers will provide live music on the field with a special performance by the Antioch Youth and Adult Choir.

“It’s our mission to improve the quality of life of the community and after seeing the need for the community to have a safe and fun place to celebrate New Year’s Eve, we knew this was the right move,” said team president Jonathan Griffith. “After such a successful Wahooloween, we’re excited to see the community come out for another great holiday.”

Spectators will be able to take a seat in the stadium, enjoy live music from local bands and enjoy food and drinks from the concession stands. Main Gates will open to the public at 5:00 p.m.

The Hancock Bank Club will host New Years on the Bay, a private party featuring an all-you-can-eat buffet from 5:30–7:30 p.m. and bottomless champagne from 6–8 p.m. This exclusive offer has tickets on sale for $75 per person and $20 per child.

Adult tickets are available online at BlueWahoos.com, at the Box Office or by calling 850-934-8444. Children’s tickets are not available online.
