Wellsburg to ring in 2018 with annual tradition
BROOKE COUNTY, W. Va. —
The City of Wellsburg will be ringing in the new year once again right in the middle of Town Square.
The city’s tradition has been going on for more than 20 years.
With everything set up, from their very own ball drop, to hot chocolate and cookies. The event is topped off with a fireworks display at midnight.
The event will begin at 10 p.m. and end just after midnight.
Wellsburg Mayor Sue Simonetti said everyone is welcome.
"The fireworks, definitely to me - myself, that’s a way of saying Happy New Year to all of Wellsburg,” Mayor Simonetti said. “All of the people have their parties at home and look forward to seeing it, that’s the exciting part for me.”
