18th Annual New Year's Eve "Meteorite Drop" in Wetumpka

In Wetumpka, folks will be treated to a special spin on the New Year's Eve tradition.

Thursday night marks the 18th Annual Meteorite drop at the Old Courthouse - in honor of the meteorite that hit the River City.

This year, it will drop at 11pm with the ball in New York City, as folks in Wetumpka watch the crowds in Time Square projected onto a screen at the event.

After the ball drops at 11pm, bands and a small fireworks show help count down 2009.

But stick around, at the stroke of midnight, a big fireworks display with light up the river.
