What to Expect from This Year’s Times Square New year’s Eve Ball Drop


2023 will officially start at 12:01 on Sunday.  

It’ll be a New Year’s Eve for the ages as the iconic Times Square ball drop celebration is back in all its glory. 

Friday’s test run by organizers was to ensure everything goes smoothly. 

The event will be open to all for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. There are no restrictions. You don’t have to be vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask and you don’t have to get tested. 

But you may want to bring a raincoat though as it’s expected to be wet, but not freezing, with temperatures in the ‘50s. 

Security will be tight, with multiple checkpoints surrounding Times Square. No umbrellas, backpacks, chairs, or alcohol are allowed. 

Some big names will be ringing in 2023 on TV. 

Miley Cyrus is co-hosting her New Year’s Eve party with Dolly Parton on NBC. 

Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen will host their annual special on CNN, but this year they have confirmed they will not be drinking. 

They’ve made headlines in years past for getting drunk on air and the comments made while on TV.  

Ryan Seacrest, host of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” on ABC, says keeping the drinking off air is a “good idea.”    

Over a million people are expected at Times Square to witness the ball drop live.
