The Third Annual Skimboarder Drop signaled the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 in Dewey Beach New Year's Eve. The crowds started to gather just before midnight on New Orleans Street to ring in the new year. Sponsored by Harry Wilson, Alley Oop Skim and the Dewey Business Partnership, this annual event has grown in popularity over the past three years. Shown waiting for the drop are (l-r) Kevin, Mary, Don and Keeley Bedwell, and Michael Gold of Elkton, Md.



Ready for the drop are Emma and Bill Lenz with Buddy.
Ready to ring in the new year are Sherry Bielicki and Rose and Ashley Furio.
Ready for the champagne toast at midnight are (l-r) Kimberlee Cullen, Mitchell King and Mike Curly.
After a countdown the skimboarder makes it descent in Dewey Beach.
A fairly large crowd waits in anticipation for midnight.
