Some Of The Strangest NYE Customers EVER!

The Times Square Ball Drop is a New Year's Eve tradition -- a dumb tradition, but still a tradition.
But did you know that many other cities have their own midnight "drops" on New Year's Eve?

No joke. Here is a list of some of the other drops:
Kennett Square, PA - Mushroom drop (in America's mushroom capital) See video above.
Raleigh, N. C. - Acorn drop
Carlisle, PA.. - Car
Miami - Orange
Atlanta - Peach
Bethlehem PA. - Peeps (yes, those funny marshmallow chicks) See video below.
Marion, Ohio - Popcorn
Harrisburg, PA.. - Strawberry
And my two personal favorites:
Mechanicsburg, PA.. - Wrench (Whoa - Watch out when that wrench drops!)
Dillsburg, PA.. - Pickle (Beats me why anyone would celebrate a "pickle drop" -- or droop.)

Groundhog Day. And strawberry, car, wrench, mushroom and pickle drops. The Mummers. Something about Pennsylvania seems to attract lots of silly faux-folk customs.
