Bring your cameras and excitement, because along with Vertical Horizon and 7,000 inflated beach balls being dropped with the kids, the New Year’s Eve event at Pier Park will have the huge inflatable Southwest Airlines Jet blown up for the kiddies to smile at and the parents to take pictures.
We have no idea just how big this inflatable plane is, but judging by the pictures we’ve been able to find online (which isn’t many), we’d say it’s about the size of a very large full sized van. It looks pretty big. Should definitely be a fun thing to be around.
It was mentioned before the hugeness of the New Year’s Eve Beach Ball Drop at Pier Park, what with Vertical Horizon coming, Southwest Airlines being the presenting sponsor and a culmination at 8:30 pm for the kids that will result in 7,000 inflated beach balls being dropped on the streets of Pier Park. Last year’s event was enormous and well attended. And if you think last year’s event was great, wait until you see this year – we’re guessing double the people and twice the action.
The event starts at 5:30 and ends sometime after midnight. Be there or be square!
