Harrisburg's NYE Strawberry damaged in fall

Posted: Updated:

Harrisburg's Strawberry, which is dropped every New Years Eve, was damaged in a fall during a practice run outside the Hilton on Friday.

"One of the harness clips which holds and secures the Strawberry broke, which caused the Strawberry to fall three stories," said Hilton General Manager Joe Massaro. "Safety is our number one priority, and prior to doing the test run the entire area was roped off and by standers where kept back."

The Hilton's engineering team is working to ensure that Harrisburg has a new Strawberry to ring in the New Year at Midnight.
