In the Red Stick, we don’t drop a ball for the countdown. We celebrate with a Red Stick Drop, of course! At Red Stick Revelry’s event, see the Red Stick Drop and a major laser light show set to music. 

Two 20‐minute laser light shows, with six high-powered 3D laser beams choreographed to music, will be projected on a screen from The Crest stage and over the audience. See the shows are at 9:30 p.m. and again at 11:00 p.m. When the Red Stick drops in Town Square at midnight, fireworks and a high beam laser show will be visible throughout the event.
