Who says a shiny ball is the only thing that can drop on New Year’s Eve? That’s the type of attitude that many Pennsylvania towns bring when ringing in the new year. Here’s a quick list of Keystone State spots that have creatively twisted the tradition, leaving crowds speechless at the end of the night:
• Harrisburg’s Strawberry Drop: In recognition of the local shopping center, a strawberry is dropped.
• Hershey’s Kiss Raise: Instead of dropping, a 300-pound Hershey Kiss is lifted up at midnight.
• Dillsburg’s Pickle: Dropping a pickle from the top of a fire truck adds to the fun.
