Instead, organizers have come up with a different way to make the tradition continue!

The CherryT Ball Drop is going virtual to ring in 2021. Unlike some other virtual events in 2020, the CherryT Ball Drop will happen LIVE! To discourage crowds, the ball drop will happen from a super secret location and be broadcast live on the CherryT Ball Drop Facebook page.
