Apple doesn't drop in Manhattan's New Year's celebration
January 5, 2017
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Just like in New York City, technical glitches marred the New Year's Eve celebration in the "Little Apple" of Manhattan, Kansas.
A large crowd gathered in the Aggieville entertainment district to watch an apple drop at the stroke of midnight. But the crowd was disappointed when the apple remained on top of a pole.
Linda Mays, executive director of the Aggieville Business Association, says the winch that drops the apple malfunctioned a few hours before the event and efforts to fix it were unsuccessful.
