Thousands gathered outside the Hilton Harrisburg to take part in the New Year’s Eve celebration. The City of Harrisburg provided music, fireworks and the big draw: the annual strawberry drop.
People counted down as the strawberry was lowered to the platform, and when it landed, people cheered as the new year arrived.
Larry Devine didn’t make any resolutions, but he has a plan. “I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with my fiance,” said Devine, “She is my heart and soul, and our wedding date can’t come soon enough.”
Several hundred people celebrated inside the Hilton.
Both restaurants were booked, and there were parties throughout the hotel.
