Miami, Florida – The annual Big Orange Drop in downtown Miami to ring in the new year will not take place, for the second year in a row.
According to city commissioner Joe Carollo, the Orange will not take place after the staff behind the event tested positive for COVID-19.
“Because of them getting COVID they’re not going to be able to put it together. But like I said, we’re still are working to have it with lasers,” Carollo said.
According to Carollo, the event, including fireworks at midnight, would continue as planned and a virtual orange drop would take place.
