It was all smiles from people all over the country and world who gathered in Times Square to ring in 2012. The warm weather and music from stars like Pitbull, Drake and Justin Bieber kept everyone dancing and singing.
An estimated one-million people watched the ball drop. Many wore blue hats, 2012 glasses and waved blue balloons. There were even a few scattered “let’s go Giants” chants. New York City Mayor Bloomberg and Lady Gaga pushed the button to send the ball into 2012 and then briefly danced with each other. Some people waited all day in Times Square for the clock to strike midnight.
