Vincennes Watermelon Drop Tonight

The City of Vincennes' Annual New Year's Eve Watermelon Drop takes place tonight in downtown Vincennes.

To ring in the New Year, 14-Knox county watermelons will be dropped at midnight from a 500-pound watermelon raised high in the sky.

Prior to the Watermelon Drop, comedian Gallagher will perform at Lincoln High School's Ader Auditorium.

Other attractions tonight include a fireworks display, music, vendors and a beer garden.  

Organizers say C-N-N will cover this year's Watermelon Drop with live cut-ins to Vincennes during their coverage from Times Square in New York.  
CNN's New Year's Eve coverage last year attracted 2.3 million viewers.
