The Key West New Year's Eve celebration was shown live on CNN.
No doubt about it...Key West love's to party. And what's a better excuse than New Year's Eve?
There were different gathering spots that offered their own unique version of the time honored tradition of lowering something special as the clock winds away the last seconds of the year.
And CNN's favorite was to see "Sushi", a local drag queen celeb, lowered from a Duval Street balcony, riding a huge high-heeled shoe.
