DETROIT -

The 4th annual Motor City New Year's Eve "The Drop" will be hosted on Tuesday in Campus Martius Park.

Organizers said the free community event will take place from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., is sponsored by Opportunity Detroit and Bamboo Detroit, and will include a unique Detroit-themed ball drop.

Entertainment throughout the night will include DJ Tom T and the band The Strange. In addition to entertainment, organizers said attendees will be able to ice skate in the park and enjoy s'mores and other concessions.

New to the event this year, due to popular request from families throughout the region, will be a family friendly Kids' Drop at 6:30 p.m., for those that want to bring their children out to experience this special event.

This year, organizers said the ball drop will come down from the Chase Tower, which faces Campus Martius Park, with the historic Penobscot and Guardian Buildings providing a backdrop.

Also new this year will be a food truck rally, featuring Detroit-area favorites such as the Mac Shack macaroni and cheese, Rolling Stones wood-fired pizza and more, organizers said.

Fountain Bistro will be having specials running throughout the event. Organizers said multiple beverage centers will also be placed around the park that will have drink tickets, $10 for two beverages.
