With a history stretching back to 1907, the New Year's celebrations begin at around 18:00, with performances across two stages. Although the rest of the United States has adopted the tradition, New York can lay claim to being the originators of the sparkly sphere lowered to coincide with the countdown. As the New Year is welcomed, fireworks ascend into the New York skyline, illuminating the city.
