Pa. town to drop giant nail on New Year's
7-foot-tall wooden nail a homage to defunct mill, officials say
This sounds like an accident waiting to happen.
Instead of the traditional ball, a town in Pennsylvania plans to drop a giant nail on New Year's Eve this week.
Artists in West Fairview constructed the 7-foot-tall nail out of wood, the Sentinel reported.
Weighing in at 50 pounds, the nail is meant to commemorate the now-defunct Harrisburg Nail Works, a local mill that once employed many residents.
West Fairview is also celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2015.
