Inaugural New Year’s Eve Celebration at OWA

December 20, 2021

Inaugural New Year’s Eve celebrations are set in Downtown OWA for a fun send off to 2021.

Bubbles & Beats, OWA’s kid-friendly activation from 2-8pm on December 31, 2021. Children can enjoy an epic bubble party with music by DJ Patrick, free kids’ crafts, inflatables, and more. This event is perfect for little ones (and adults, too!) who can’t quite make it to midnight. Kids crafts include peel-and-stick New Year’s 2022 glasses and noisemaker wands. Quick bites are available from the Taste of OWA food truck parked by Clash eSports Center where the scavenger hunt prize pick-up is also located.

Stick around for Downtown OWA Sparks & Sounds starting at 5:00pm on the OWA Island! Enjoy free live music by the Miles Flatt Band and Gulf Coast motown royalty, The Tip Tops.

For the final farewell to 2021, an epic fireworks show will start at 8:50pm!

Looking for the perfect viewing area? Bring your chair, blanket, or towel to snag your spot at the OWA Island Amphitheater. The bridge by Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen or on the Sky Balloons inside The Park at OWA are other fantastic spots to take in the views. Truthfully, there’s not a bad spot to catch the show and enjoy the music!
