MoonPie Drop Headliner: Gretchen Wilson
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) It's hard to believe but we will soon ring in a new year and that means planning for Mobile's New Year's Eve Celebration downtown.
Events Mobile Inc. says this year's headliner is country music singer Gretchen Wilson. Other acts should be announced next week.
"Well we'll have multiple local bands at the Riverview Plaza and at Bienville Square. And then we'll have on the main stage an opening act for Gretchen Wilson. We're in the process of drawing up those names right now," said Carol Hunter, Events Mobile Inc.
Last year the moon pie drop brought in about $4.2 million. Events Mobile Inc. says their budget for this year is $200,000. They're about $25,000 short but are hoping to make that up with sponsors.
