The Times Square New Year’s Eve ball drop will go virtual this year with a “virtually enhanced celebration.”
Tim Tompkins, president of the Times Square Alliance, says, “One thing that will never change is the ticking of time and the arrival of a New Year at midnight on December 31st. But this year there will be significantly new and enhanced virtual, visual and digital offerings to complement whatever limited live entertainment or experiences — still in development — will take place in Times Square.”
CBS News says that “barricades will be set up around Times Square to keep people out, like every other New Year’s Eve, but they won’t be letting anyone in.”
