There will be a variety of large and unusual objects dropping across America Tuesday night to ring in 2014. From a pineapple in Hawaii, to a moon pie in Alabama, a peach in Atlanta, and a music note in Tennessee.

States across the country are preparing the odd-ball objects to drop at the count down to the New Year.

In Florida, they've been doing a drag queen shoe drop for years, in Key West. In New York, the confetti has been tested by the official superhero of New Year's Eve, Spider Man.

And the star of the show is ready! With more than 2,500 waterford crystal triangles installed on it and weighing nearly 12,000 pounds. The Times Square ball is a 106-year tradition.

About a million people are expected to ring in 2014 in Times Square.
