Eastport to drop sardine and maple leaf on New Year's Eve
If you're looking to celebrate New Year's Eve with something other than a big ball being dropped, downtown Eastport is the place to be.
From the third story of the Tides Institute and Museum of Art, an 8-foot sardine will fall - that's at midnight our time.
An hour prior to that a giant illuminated maple leaf will be lowered from the same roof in a nod to our Canadian neighbors across the bay.
They're on Atlantic time and ring in the new year an hour earlier.
