MoonPie MoonPie!!

In Mobile, we love a MoonPie.  We love to eat it, throw it and drop it.

And, we especially love to drop it.

Every New Year’s Eve, a giant MoonPie drops from the RSA Trustmark Building to ring in the upcoming year!

But, that’s not the only thing that happens in Mobile on NYE.

Moonpie over Mobile - 2010

Alongside the MoonPie drop is a street party that you don’t want to miss! We’ll be starting the party off by having Round 1 of the College Football Playoffs playing on a big screen on the main stage at 7PM.

We take football very seriously. 

At 9:45PM, we’re cutting into something you probably haven’t seen before – the world’s largest MoonPie Cake.

Once we have all gotten a little sugar rush, it’s time to walk it off.  We’re all joining in on a Second Line Parade at 10:15PM,  led by the Excelsior Band, down Royal Street. We’ll end at the main stage off of Bienville Square where a concert awaits!

At 11PM — EN VOGUE TAKES THE STAGE to make all of our 90’s dreams come true!  The R&B group has won seven MTV Video Music Awards, three Soul Train Awards, two American Music Awards, and received seven Grammy nominations. And, they are ready to put on a show for us!

Then, the big show. The MoonPie Drop at midnight followed by a laser and light show over Downtown Mobile!

2015 has been a wonderful year — but we have a good feeling about 2016. We hope you can be there to help us ring it in!
