New Year’s Eve Celebration at Seaside

New Year’s Eve Celebration at Seaside

The Merchants of Seaside invite everyone in the South Walton community (including locals and visitors!) to join them on December 31st for Countdown Seaside! A New Year’s Eve Celebration.

If you’ve never experienced Seaside on New Year’s Eve before, it’s a big family-friendly party featuring live entertainment, kid’s art projects, street performers and an absolutely spectacular fireworks display right over the Gulf of Mexico. Festivities begin at 7 p.m. and last until Midnight.

This year, spectators will enjoy a night of music ranging from fresh Americana Rock ‘n Roll to Folk and Roots. The celebration kicks off in Seaside’s Amphitheater with a performance by local fav Kyle Lamonica at 7 p.m., followed by The David Mayfield Parade taking the stage at 8:15 p.m. and then headliners Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers at 10:00 p.m. Seaside will then welcome 2012 with its traditional fireworks display at the stroke of midnight.

Especially for the kids, Abrakadoodle will also be on hand from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. offering unique art projects as part of the New Year’s Celebration. There’s no cost to participate in these projects, which include making celebratory noisemakers, as well as a time capsule in which families will be able to place New Year’s wishes and resolutions. Seaside will also have face painters to get both the young and young-at-heart in the festive spirit.

Watching fireworks over the Gulf has become a true South Walton tradition, and Seaside’s event promises one of the very best views along 30A!
