Seventh-Annual ‘Peeps Chick Drop' Rings in New Year in Lehigh Valley

A Lehigh Valley town will ring in the New Year Thursday afternoon by dropping a giant marshmallow chick like Times Square's New Year's Ball.

The 4.5-foot tall, 85-pound marshmallow Peeps candy will drop at 5:15 p.m. as part of "Peepsfest" in Bethlehem. This year is the seventh-annual "Peeps Chick Drop" in the town, where the sugary candies are made.

The Peeps Drop marks the end of the two-day Peepsfest, celebrated in Bethlehem at the end of every year.
