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.
There is even a possum drop in Brasstown, North Carolina, but starting this year, the city won't be using a live animal because of concerns from animal-rights groups.
Here's a look at how some other cities have celebrated:
Moon Pie Drop in Mobile, Alabama
Cheese Drop in Plymouth, Wisconsin
Flip-Flop Drop in Folly Beach, South Carolina
Peep Drop in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
Sardine Drop in Eastport, Maine
Pickle Drop in Mt. Olive, North Carolina
Acorn Drop in Raleigh, North Carolina
Donut Drop in Hagerstown, Maryland
