The downtown Buffalo ball drop is, by far, the most popular spot to ring in the New Year in Buffalo, NY. In fact, it's the second largest ball drop in the country. In the past over 40,000 people have come downtown to celebrate the new year, so officials have already begun preparing the party downtown.
