There are a lot of non-traditional ways to welcome the new year. One of them takes place right here in the Tri-State.
There are a lot of non-traditional ways to welcome the new year.  One of them takes place right here in the Tri-State.

The 6th annual watermelon drop will be taking place at Vincennes' Riverfront Pavilion Tuesday night.  The event includes a 500-pound watermelon rising high in the sky as midnight approaches, then dropping 14 watermelons onto a splatform at the stroke of midnight.

The drop is expected to be included in CNN's coverage of New Year's celebrations across the country.

In addition to the drop, comedian, Gallagher will be at the event.  His performance at Vincennes Lincoln High School will start at 5p-m Eastern Time.  Tickets are $15 to $75.
