Cape Harbour’s 5th annual New Year’s Eve party Friday
Cape Harbour is hosting its 5th annual New Year’s Eve party Friday, Dec. 31. The holiday bash will feature a ball drop, fireworks and live music.
The ball, which begins at a height of 85 feet, slowly drops, with 10,000 white lights flashing the entire time, before it hits its 35 foot mark at midnight. Fireworks will accompany the ball drop as it makes its way down with the countdown.
“Usually I find someone in the crowd and hand them the remote and tell them to push the red button,” George Pisello said. Once midnight strikes, 2011 will light up in red to bring in the new year.
“I designed something that could do it,” he said, of the ball drop process, which included two steel cables hung between the two buildings that were controlled by an electric winch.
The band Soapy Tuna will perform from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. at The Joint on New Year’s Eve.
Runrummers will have open dinner seating from 5-10 p.m. Cafe Pignoli will also feature food specialties and live music by Vinny Sax with Soul.
The Banana Bay Tour Company will make its final sunset voyage of the year as it heads out for a two-hour cruise beginning an hour before sunset. For more information call (239) 728-8687.
Those who attend the event are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to help support those in need.
