VIRTUAL BALL DROP FROM TIMES SQUARE
Virtual ball drop
The New Year’s Eve ball drop in New York has been taking place since 1907 and is one of the most famous New Year’s celebrations in the world. The famous Times Square ball drop on New Year’s Eve in New York will take place virtually this year, without a live audience.

Although the event will not be canceled completely this year, it will only take place virtually, without a live audience. The two million visitors who normally attend Times Square will have to watch the ball descend from home.
The organisation of the event is forced to do so by the COVID-19 pandemic, which makes it impossible to have hundreds of thousands of people usher in 2021 together. Currently hard work is being put in creating a digital alternative for what may be the most desirable turn of the year in ages.
Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram for information on where to follow the event online.
