Ball Drop in Royal Oak Cancelled

From Royal Oak Patch

Those hoping to witness a big steel ball of lights drop in Royal Oak on New Year’s Eve, like in 2010, will be disappointed to learn there will not be a repeat this year.

Last year, an estimated 12,000 people gatheredin and around Sixth Street and Washington Avenue to watch a free rock concert, enjoy family friendly activities and watch a 1,300-pound lighted ball drop at the stroke of midnight in true New York-style fashion.

The night was such a success that the city gave the event sponsor, Citadel Broadcasting, the nod to come back and do it all again this year, but the company canceled.

“We did approve a special events permit for (New Year’s Eve), but they pulled it,” said Stewart Meek, assistant to the city manager.

Meek said the sponsor has showed no intention of repeating last year's well-attended event, which seemed to distinguish Royal Oak as not only a capable host for its residents, but also a destination for Metro Detroiters and even out-of-towners.

A call to Citadel for comment had not yet been returned.

Local bars and restaurants were at capacity and Royal Oak Police reported fewer than a dozen arrests on New Year's Eve.

"We're happy that 12,000 people came and peacefully had a great time," Sgt. Al Carter said last year. "I think the night was a big success for Royal Oak."

Perhaps the happiest demographic served by the outdoor ball drop were families with young children – those who would otherwise would be stuck at home watching TV.

"We were able to bring the kids and they're having a great time. The music (which included the Gin Blossoms and Detroit natives the Romantics) is great and the arts and crafts are terrific,” said Freda Efros of Royal Oak last year.

How True Is This??

Two longtime friends were sitting at the bar and one of them said to the other "Look at those two old guys sitting across from us. thats what were going to look like in ten years" The second said, "That's a mirror you're looking at"

" The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. Unless a man starts on the strange assumption that he has never existed before, it is quite certain that he will never exist afterwards. Unless a man be born again, he shall by no means enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. "
