(VINCENNES) - Dave Parman and The Coatney's band will be rocking from 9:00 PM to Midnight at the New Year's Eve Watermelon Drop in downtown Vincennes.

The free celebration will be Indiana's last 2016 Bicentennial event - just as it was the first Bicentennial event of the year.

The Watermelon Drop, located near the riverfront at First and Main Street, will feature the popular Coatney band in a giant heated tent, which will also include a beer and wine sales area.

Lots of events starting at 5 p.m.with food vendors, and carrying right on through midnight

The tent will be near a famous "splatform" where 17 local watermelons will fall at midnight, followed by a fireworks display.

The event began in 2008.
