Crowds gathered in downtown Bangor Saturday night to usher in the new year with the city's traditional ball drop in West Market Square.

The ceremonial drop of the giant, lighted beach ball from the top of the Paddy Murphy's capped off an evening of live music, street performers and general reveling in the downtown.
