There were plenty of things dropping for New Year’s Eve in Key West, Florida.

The Sunshine State’s hedonistic, subtropical island had six different “drops” Tuesday evening modeled after New York City’s famous ball drop.

Among them is Gary Marion, known as the drag queen Sushi, who was lowered in a huge facsimile of a woman’s high heel at a bar on Duval Street.

Outside Sloppy Joe’s Bar, famous for being a hangout of writer Ernest Hemingway, thousands of revelers watched the drop of a gigantic man-made conch shell, the symbol of the Florida Keys.

Celebrants saw a huge replica of a Key lime wedge splashing down into a larger-than-life margarita glass at a harbor-side resort.

There also was a “landing” of a flight attendant in a section of a replica aircraft at First Flight Island Restaurant & Brewery, billed as the birthplace of Pan American World Airways.

Also on the bill are a faux “tuna drop” and a “pirate wench” who was lowered from the top of a tall ship’s mast.
