SHAMOKIN - The annual Coal Drop will take place at Market and Independence street as the city continues its New Year's Eve tradition.

The event, sponsored by Klacik and Associates, will start at 10 p.m. and run until 12:30 a.m. It will feature fireworks, food and music by DJ Powerhouse Sounds.

Even on especially cold nights, the celebration has attracted hundreds downtown in recent years, and the same is expected Monday night.
