At the other end of the Shore, Chincoteague will host the Pony Island Horseshoe drop and promenade.   While the lighted horseshoe isn’t crystal it does sparkle. This years event will take place at the Downtown Waterfront Park beginning at approximately 10:45 p.m. The event begins with a promenade of crazy costumes just before the stroke of midnight which is when the lighted horseshoe drops. You can wear your favorite costume or just be a spectator. Prizes will be awarded in various categories.
