Hundreds gathered at the Levitt Pavilion lawn to watch the Peeps chick drop—an annual New Year's Eve tradition in Bethlehem.

The drop of the Peep—a 4½-foot tall, 85-pound, lit, fiberglass model of Just Born's marshmallow candy chick—was preceded by a countdown at 5:15 p.m., a nod to the early bedtime of most of the attendees of PeepFest at SteelStacks, which concluded this evening.
