Organizers Prepare For TC's New Years Cherry-T Ball Drop

Posted: Updated:

Organizers in Traverse City are doing some last minute preparations for the 4th Annual Cherry-T Ball Drop.

If you haven't made plans for bringing in the new year, you can head to downtown Traverse City for live music and some high-energy fun.

Organizers say they're testing 10,000 lights for the ball to make sure everything is set to go for Tuesday night.

 The Cherry-T Ball will drop in a new location this year.

 It will descend over the intersection of Park and Front streets due to construction at the Cass Street location.

 The admission fee is a $3 donation or 3 non-perishable food items.

 Organizers of the event say the cold weather won't stop the fun.

Dean Rose, co-founder of the Cherry-T Ball Drop says, "...everything is going smoothly. It's going to be a little cold so make sure you bundle up but it was cold last year and we had fifteen thousand people downtown in the cold."

If you'll be in the area during the day Tuesday make sure to note that some streets will close at 4:00 PM to give organizers time start setting up for the big event.
