Next to Fat Tuesday -- New Years eve is the Port City's biggest night of the year!

Plans have been in the works for months for the 11th annual Moonpie Drop!

In addition to the world's largest edible moonpie, and second line parade... This year will feature three acts -- with headliner -- "sister sledge" taking the stage to ring in 2019.  Councilman Fred Richardson delivered the news.

And as if we needed another reason to celebrate this year's festivities also kick off Alabama's 200th birthday.
