We are all excited for a new fresh start and for 2020 to just be over. But what about New Year’s celebrations? Times Square New York is the iconic spot many people spend their new years. In 2019 about 2 million people filled in times square waiting for the annual ball drop. But with the pandemic this year, there will be some new changes.

There is going to be an extreme limit to people mostly including the organizers and entertainment. The entertainment is still in the progression. The event will be “virtually enhanced, visually compelling and very different. In addition to the live programming, the event will feature “significantly new and enhanced virtual, visual and digital offerings,” Tompkins said. The celebration will focus on the “news, people and pop culture” from 2020, including programming featuring first responders, essential workers and health professionals alongside the entertainers who typically perform at the annual event.”
