JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Hundreds of Gator Bowl fans packed the landing Tuesday afternoon to celebrate the New Year.
Georgia and Nebraska fans enjoyed live music, food, and drinks hours before the ball dropped.
It was a family-friendly event, with balloon animals and face painting.
Restaurants in the area geared up for the crush of New Years revelers by putting up outdoor tents serving drinks and snacks.
While much of the crowd said they were going home before the ball drop, plenty of people said they would stick around for the countdown to 2014.
