ALLEGAN, Mich. — Ring in the new decade with the LARGEST New Year’s Eve ball drop in Michigan!

Don’t believe us? Google it. At 10 feet 6 inches in diameter, the ball of 30,000 synchronized LED lights drops 60 feet from Allegan Event’s zipline tower on the Downtown Allegan Riverfront while the community counts down the seconds before the midnight. This one-of-a-kind outdoor event has drawn over 3,000 attendees from across the Mitten State, and beyond, for the last two years.

Join us on December 31st from 7pm to midnight for food trucks, hot drinks, alcoholic beverages, massive fire pits, glow-in-the-dark ziplining over the Kalamazoo River, live music from Funkle Jesse, West Michigan’s premiere party band, and fireworks over the water at the stroke of midnight. Ring in the New Year with Michigan’s LARGEST New Year’s Eve ball drop at the Downtown Allegan Riverfront!

The award-winning Allegan Riverfront Park not only features a 60’ zipline tower owned and operated by Allegan Event, but also boasts ample public gathering space, an outdoor stage, and an 18 foot long fireplace. Enjoy the event, but don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore Downtown Allegan, brimming with newly opened and expanded businesses, including local dining establishments open late to keep up with the festivities.

Allegan Event offers fun and adventure for the entire family, indoors and out! For this special evening, the zip tower will be open 7pm-11:30pm and prices are $20 per person!
