MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

What's 12 feet tall, weighs in at 600 pounds, is currently sitting high atop the RSA BankTrust building in Mobile and is planned to drop 317 feet in 60 seconds down the side of that spectacular building?

I bet your first guess wouldn't have been a giant MoonPie - but that is indeed what I'm referring to.

This year 80,000 to 100,000 people are expected to flock to historic downtown Mobile to watch a Mardi Gras parade, listen to iconic music, see a state-of-the-art laser light show before the evenings main event: a MoonPie drop commemorating the New Year for us central time folks. 

If you can't make it to Mobile – don't fret – Raycom Media (our parent company) and 20 participating Raycom Television stations including WSFA 12 News will be airing a live "It's a MoonPie New Year" special at 1130pm Saturday night culminating with the MoonPie drop at midnight as we ring in the new year.

Here's to wishing you and yours a safe, happy and prosperous "MoonPie New Year!"

We appreciate and encourage your feedback.
