Boyertown bear drop becomes a family event

Boyertown bear drop becomes a family event

BOYERTOWN, Pa. - A bear helped Boyertown ring in the new year a little earlier than the rest of us.

A bear was lowered outside the Boyertown Historical Society at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Organizers said they wanted to do something unique after seeing some of the New Year's Eve traditions near Harrisburg.

They've been lowering a bear for the past four years, but they moved up the time to make the event family friendly.
