Billed as “West Michigan’s largest New Year’s Eve Ball,” Ludington offers the quintessential small-town New Year’s Eve celebration, complete with an outdoor beer garden and music, a real ball drop in the heart of downtown, plus fireworks. Beginning at 9:30 p.m. on Ludington Avenue, enjoy live music and an entertainment tent/beer garden with commemorative light-up glasses. Then gather at the intersection of James Street and Ludington Avenue as midnight approaches to get a good view of the New Year’s Eve Ball touching down. Once the clock strikes midnight, turn your attention to the sky and watch a dazzling fireworks display over the top of downtown. Free event with option to purchase a commemorative glass for $8 in advance or $10 that evening.
Ludington is at the junction of US-10 and US-31. Continue west toward Lake Michigan on US-10.
