An iceberg will be dropped in Yuma's Historic Downtown as part of our 2nd Annual New Year’s Eve celebration. The Iceberg to be dropped will be a giant, fabricated head of iceberg lettuce, illuminated from the inside. Organized by Visit Yuma in cooperation with the City of Yuma will feature the dropping of the giant lighted lettuce at 10:00 p.m. to coincide with New York City’s Ball Drop, and again at Midnight to officially ring in the new year in Yuma.
Iceberg lettuce was chosen as the symbol of the event due to the importance of and the community’s close ties to the local agriculture industry which produces about 90% of the nation’s winter leafy vegetables. The fabricated head of iceberg lettuce to be dropped will be 8’ by 8’ and lit from the inside. A large countdown clock will add to the excitement during the festivities.
