Celebrate New Year's Eve in Downtown Ocean Springs

The Drop on Government

On Sunday, December 31, 2023, the City of Ocean Springs will present the inaugural New Year’s Eve Celebration – The Drop on Government. The City will drop an iconic ball that will illuminate the sky. The Tree-Oh will kick off The Drop on Government at 8:00 p.m. with Unfazed Show and Band leading the party into 2024. 

“Ocean Springs’s New Year’s Eve celebration is a time for our community to enjoy another year in the place to be,” said Mayor Kenny Holloway. “We live, work, and play in a great town and we should take a moment to reflect on our accomplishments in 2023 but also look to 2024.”

The Drop will feature an iconic ball, outfitted with LED lights, and suspended approximately 60 feet on Government Street, a block from Washington Avenue, by Ocean Springs Fire Department’s ladder truck. The Drop will serve as a visual countdown for all participants as the clock strikes midnight. 

To find out more about the event, visit the City of Ocean Springs’s website at or visit the Facebook event page. For more questions, please contact the Mayor’s Office at 228.875.6722.
