Miami Prepares For New Years Eve "Dropping Of The Orange" Tradition
MIAMI, FL - DECEMBER 27: Workers watch as the Big Orange, a New Year's time ball, is prepared to be raised onto the side of the Hotel InterContinental on December 27, 2012 in Miami, Florida. The ball has been renamed 'La Gran Naranja' this year in honor of Viva Florida 500, a three-year Spanish heritage campaign that begins January 1. The 35-foot ball rises 400 feet to the top of the building and is lowered at midnight on the 31st to mark the beginning of the new year in Miami. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
