In honor of our 130th Anniversary (1893-2023), The Redlands Chamber of Commerce and the City of Redlands will bring back the Annual New Year’s Eve Orange Drop, celebrating the incoming year by dropping a spectacularly lit orange.
Downtown businesses, including retail, restaurants, and bars will have the benefit of having thousands of thirsty, hungry customers looking for a place to land while waiting for the year 2024 to ring in. Local vendors will also be available, providing even more options for community members and visitors. The Orange Drop on State Street will include a DJ, dancing, specialty drinks and dinners, and much more.
As has been demonstrated in hundreds of cities across the nation that have been ringing in the New Year in this fashion for years, the economic infusion is remarkable and the showcase of community and local businesses is notable.
Sponsors for the event will have access to a VIP area hosted with refreshments and receive gift baskets of locally-made Redlands products, donated by local artisans. They will also have logos at the event and be included in press releases. More information will be coming throughout the year, please check back for the latest information.
So gather up your friends and family and head to downtown Redlands to celebrate the arrival of 2024!
