New Year's Eve Ball Drop is back in Downtown Salisbury!


It’s time to ring in the New Year right with the 9th annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, presented by Gillis Gilkerson.

Rev up those noisemakers and get ready for a night filled with live music from the AMP Studios, Wavvy Gravy, DJ B-Side and Marlee plus a ball drop and confetti at midnight!
