BUFFALO, N.Y. -- For the 30th year, a New Year's Eve ball drop will take place in Buffalo, and with no break from the cold, dress warm.

"I think lots of layers, be smart. If your kids are starting to complain that they're cold listen to that and try to get them somewhere warm to warm up," said Dr. Sam Cloud, associate medical director at Erie County Medical Center, "but what I think is most important is dressing in layers and making sure we're wearing, you know, a couple pairs of socks, we've got proper gloves and scarves and hats."

The Buffalo Ball Drop and Fireworks will begin with entertainment around 10 p.m. at Theodore Roosevelt Plaza near the Electric Tower. Free parking will be available at Main Place Mall and Fernbach ramps, and Metro Rail hours will also be extended.

You can watch from a comfortable spot indoors by turning on Spectrum News. We'll bring you both Buffalo's ball drop and that other one, in Times Square.
