Get ready to ring in a new decade with a massive MoonPie and Collective Soul in Downtown Mobile! Collective Soul plays at 11:00 p.m. and will ring in the New Year with the MoonPie drop from the RSA Trustmark building! There will also be a fun laser light show and fireworks shot from the Mobile River and atop the Trustmark building – sponsored by Spire.
