The First Annual Clam Drop at the First Universalist Church in Yarmouth on New Year's Eve.
Tim Greenway/Staff Photographer -- The Steamer costume is lowered 25 feet from the bell tower during the First Annual Clam Drop at the First Universalist Church in Yarmouth on December 31, 2012. Steamer is the official mascot for the Clam Festival. The organizers at the church partly got the idea from Eastport where they drop a sardine to ring in the New Year. There were 2 clam drops, one at 7 p.m. and another at midnight.
