FOLLY BEACH, SC (WCSC) -

While many of your were getting ready to watch the ball drop in Times Square on your TV, others were at Folly Beach for the Flip Flop Drop. 

It's a five year tradition that keeps on going. Hundreds of people gathered to watch the 8-feet tall, shimmering flip flops drop from the sky as a celebration into the new year.

"If you miss this event, you miss the event of the year," says the Flip Flop Drop DJ, Furman Dominic. "It's such a big huge party, it's a little New York City."

Many couldn't wait to get in the beach water as well.

"It's cold, too cold, it's freezing," said some locals who took a swim.

Although the water was cold, the warm winter here brought many travelers to the coast for the event.

"We've never seen it, we're really interested, we can't wait," says a traveler.
