Sister Sledge will headline Mobile’s New Year’s Eve celebration. Officials made the announcement Wednesday.
The night will kick off with the cutting of the world’s largest edible MoonPie.
Followed by a parade down Royal Street to the main stage.
Tower of Power cover band will kick off the evening’s entertainment before sister sledge takes the stage.
City leaders say they selected Sister Sledge because one of their top songs reflects Mobile.
“Their main hit is We Are Family and it is reflective of One Mobile because One Mobile is like one family,” city councilman Fred Richardson said. “Get ready, get ready, Mobile. I’ve already asked some of our citizens especially the older ones to make sure that they buy them a seat belt. Buckle up because they are going to rock this house.”
The evening will end with the dropping of the world’s largest electronic MoonPie and a fireworks show.
