Cheyenne ball drop
If you can't make it to Times Square this year, there's still an opportunity to celebrate New Year's with a ball drop. Cheyenne will host its annual end-of-the-year celebration on Thursday at the Depot Plaza. Past events have attracted up to 5,000 people, so you'll have plenty of friends to ring in 2016.
