Downtown Salisbury rang in the New Year – and a new decade — with the seventh annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop last Tuesday night, presented by Gillis Gilkerson. 

The night was filled with live music by AMP Studios and the Tops Cut Off DJ Team, plus special guest acts, giveaways and confetti at midnight.

New Year’s Eve SBY Ball Drop was located in the new Town Square in front of the Downtown Salisbury parking garage complete with a full stage, and a 4.5-foot-wide ball lit with thousands of LED lights.

The event ended just after midnight when the ball is dropped.

New Year’s Eve SBY Ball Drop is produced by The Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District on behalf of the city of Salisbury.
