The Pony Island Horseshoe Drop is an end of year celebration that culminates in a promenade of crazy costumes just before the countdown to the stroke of midnight. That's when the lighted horseshoe drops just in time to ring in the New Year!

It's not Swarovski Crystal...but it does sparkle!

Wear your favorite costume or just be a spectator...

It's our heritage.  We are after all, the home of the World-Famous Saltwater Cowboys. So, if you show up lookin' like a Cowboy or a Country Music Star…no worries…

It's all perfectly natural here!

To become totally immersed in the oddest of silly visual spectacles, you should head for the Downtown Waterfront Park around 11:00 PM.

Prizes will be awarded in various categories

Bring your camera to capture the spectacle, dress warm, wear a hat and gloves for sure, and comfortable shoes so you can shimmy and dance to the beat, but most importantly; bring family and friends with you to enjoy the grand fun that is all Chincoteague Island!
