-- What to do if there's no ball drop in your town on New Year's Eve? Well, if you're in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, you might head to the annual bologna drop. Or, if you're in Vincennes, Indiana, get ready to see a massive watermelon drop.
The ball might light up Times Square in New York City every December 31, but across the country, people gather to see other wacky things drop from the sky to mark the new year -- like a chunk of cheese or a pickle, depending on where you live.
