Buffalo welcomes 2015

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - Almost 50,000 people packed into Roosevelt Square in Downtown Buffalo to ring in 2015.

Buffalo has the second largest ball drop in nation behind New York City.

The ball itself weighs 220 pounds and has 350 LED lights. The ball dropped from Iskalo Development's Electric Tower.

"It's a staff of eight people that mans the ball drop, that drops 108 feet in a minute and 14 seconds," said Daniel Couch with Iskalo Development.

This year, the crowds were entertained by 97 Rock's DJ Jickster and musician Caitlin Koch and her band.

At the strike of midnight, 7 Eyewitness News anchors Keith Radford and Joanna Pasceri shared in their annual New Year's kiss.
