Eight Other New Year's Eve Symbols-- Part 3

PEEP--  Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, 4 1/2 feet tall, 4 feet wide.

As part of an annual two-day New Year's Eve festival, an 85 pound lighted yellow Peep chick descends at a family friendly 5:15 p.m. and again at midnight.

SHOE--  Key West, Florida.  4 feet tall by 8 foot wide.

Sushi, portrayed by female impersonator Gary Marion, sits atop a red, high-heeled shoe and is lowered from the second-story balcony of Bourbon St. Pub/New Orleans House to the ground at midnight.

I can think of three other New Year's Eve symbols off the top of my head:

ACORN--  Raleigh, N.C.
PICKLE--  Mt. Olive, N.C.  (Mt. Olive Pickles)
MOON PIE--  Mobile, Alabama
