26th annual Buffalo Ball Drop & Fireworks

Did you know that Buffalo’s New Year’s Eve Ball Drop is the second largest in the country? Times Square might take the prize for attracting the most people, but Buffalo certainly takes the cake for having the most heart (and a heck of a lot of people). Downtown Buffalo is the place to be on New Year’s Eve each year, as The Electric Tower transforms into countdown central, featuring the ball drop and an explosive display of fireworks that will leave you speechless. Not to mention the skating on Rotary Rink and the nearby restaurants and NYE venues that contribute to the dynamic scene. This is a free and family-friendly event.

“Iskalo Development is pleased to host the 26th consecutive Ball Drop at the historic Electric Tower,” stated Paul B. Iskalo, founder and CEO of Iskalo Development. “Since our acquisition of the Electric Tower in 2004, we have looked forward each year to welcoming fellow Western New Yorkers to Downtown’s Electric District to celebrate our great city and ring in the New Year.”

Local singing sensation Caitlin Koch will headline the show, which is slated to begin at 10:30 pm.
