The community celebration at Kleman Plaza chimed in the New Year and brought people from all over Tallahassee.

The Sister Hazel band and many other local talent took the stage and the Times Square ball drop was flashed on a huge screen.

"Absolutely fabulous the weather and our attendance surpassed what we ever thought we would have," said Curt Reilly from The Downtown Business Association.

According to authorities, the event brought between 12,000 to14,000 people.

"So, for a first time event-- I think we hit a grand slam," said Reilly.

If you missed out on all the festivities, the remains say it all.

"I enjoyed seeing the people have fun and this is just part of our job cleaning up, so we make sure the park is left the way they find out after they leave," said Ronald Burnett from the City of Tallahassee.

The event is over, but there is always next year.

"Thank you for those people that did come out and attend and I look forward to ringing 2014 with maybe the same time of bang," said Reilly.

According to authorities, the clean up the day after only took one hour.
