It's time once again to put on funny hats, make resolutions you won't keep and go to downtown Bangor to watch the ball drop in West Market Square!

Below is some video from the 2012 ball drop. For any of you who have been, you know it's a good time with lots of people gathered in the heart of the city. You'll probably want to dress warm, though, because it can be frickin' cold down there!

This year, there's lots of stuff to do before the midnight ball drop including a gala celebration at the Bangor Public Library and the annual street party in West Market Square that will feature live music, fire spinners, mechanical bull rides and the ever-popular Mr. & Mrs. Paul Bunyan Competition!
