Watermelon Drop

About Watermelon Drop

RING IN THE NEW YEAR by celebrating at the Annual Watermelon Drop held in downtown Vincennes! Knox County's own quirky New Year's event features live music in a heated tent. Watch a 500-pound watermelon rise high in the sky as midnight approaches, culminating with 17 Knox County watermelons dropped on the splatform at the stroke of midnight followed by fireworks.
