Ball drop again slated for downtown Buffalo on New Year's Eve

Downtown Buffalo will look like a party again on New Year's Eve with the ball drop in Roosevelt Plaza.

The ball drop to ring in 2017 will happen at the Electric Tower, at the intersections of Main, East Huron and Genesee streets. Fireworks will follow the ball drop.

The festivities start at 10:30 p.m. and include a performance from singer-songwriter and Orchard Park native Caitlin Koch. There will be video walls set up to watch both the Buffalo and Times Square ball drops.

Organizers plan to run a test of the ball drop at 10 a.m. Dec. 29.

And what's the weather going to be like New Year's Eve? Temperatures will be in the upper 20s and there's a 50 percent chance of snow with mostly cloudy skies, according to the National Weather Service.
