GREEN BAY, Wis. – Chicago had a rising star. Times Square had a crystal ball. And Atlanta had a big peach.
Now Green Bay, Wisconsin, hopes to start a New Year’s tradition with a myth the mayor just made up.
It’s the “Legend of the Lucky Llama.”
Officials had a man dressed as Father Time, walk across the Ray Nitschke Memorial Bridge, with a llama wearing a sash.
The mayor says everyone who sees the llama walk across the bridge would receive blessings and good fortune. He says he hopes this will be a new Green Bay tradition.
