(New York, NY) -- We're just days away now from the start of 2019, and in New York City's Times Square prep is well underway for the ball drop.
Organizers have a busy week of events planned, including today's installation of the Waterford Crystal, which adorns the iconic ball. On Friday, Good Riddance Day offers folks a chance to write up a bad memory and toss it into an industrial sized shredder, as a symbolic step forward into the new year.
The coming weekend acts as a dress rehearsal, with a confetti test on Saturday, and a test run for the ball itself on Sunday.
