BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo officials plan on ringing in the new year with a bang.

The New Year's Eve celebration kicks off at 10pm Roosevelt Plaza right in front of the Electric Tower. The ball drop event doubles as a benefit for the Police Athletic League-- to help the organization raise the needed funds to support the many youth programs they provide for the community.

“With 2019 coming to a close, I extend my best wishes to City residents, business owners and visitors, and invite everyone to ring in 2020 with us at the 32nd annual Buffalo Ball Drop and Fireworks event,” said Mayor Brown. “As PAL Chair, I recognize the importance of PAL to our City and I encourage New Year’s Eve revelers to continue to support this valuable organization which provides recreation, education, and cultural opportunities for our youth."

The ball drop will feature performances by the Tommy Z and the All Star Band.

Free parking will be available at the Buffalo Civic Auto Ramps, Fernbach Ramp and Turner Ramp.

WKBW is a proud sponsor of the Buffalo Ball Drop. You can watch the ball drop right here on 7 ABC starting at 11:00 p.m.
