The 2022 New Year’s Eve Blueberry Drop will add a fireworks display to the fun.
The Town of Burgaw, Pender County Tourism, Pender County Parks and Recreation and the North Carolina Blueberry Festival will celebrate the 5th Annual New Year’s Eve Blueberry Drop powered by W. O. Grubb Crane Rental.
“The annual Blueberry Drop has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in the last four years due to the hard work of our committee,” says Cody Suggs, Burgaw Parks and Recreation director. “Last year was our biggest crowd, and we look to continue that success with some new features for this year’s event.”
The New Year’s Eve Blueberry Drop takes place in Historic Downtown Burgaw with the celebration beginning at 5 pm and concluding at 7:30 pm. The lighted Blueberry Drop will take place at 7 pm.
Entertainment will be provided by Ace Party Band from Kannapolis with music of all genres to get everyone dancing.
The town has taken the celebration a step further by adding a fireworks display to begin shortly following the drop. The fireworks can be enjoyed from the event area or designated parking areas throughout town. Information on parking areas can be found on the town’s website. Fireworks will be provided by Hale Artificier, Inc. from Lexington.
Spectators are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs. The Blueberry Drop committee strongly encourages no outside coolers, alcohol or pets.
Food vendors will include Lanes Ferry Food Truck, Port City Que, Something Good Food Truck, Topdog Hotdogs and Catering, Chris’s Cosmic Cheesecakes and Jay’s Funnel Cakes. The Burgaw Lions Club will also be selling hot chocolate.
