NEW YORK (AP) — Messages written by Dick Clark's fans will be part of the confetti that's showered on Times Square next New Year's Eve.
People can share their memories of Clark on square-inch pieces of confetti at the Times Square Visitor Center & Museum. The messages will be displayed at the center's Confetti Wishing Wall until New Year's Eve.
Tributes also can be submitted online. Visitors to the center can leave flowers and mementoes beneath a photo montage of Clark's life.
The Times Square Alliance says Clark "was instrumental in making New Year's Eve at the Crossroads of the World what it is today."
The longtime host of "American Bandstand" and the New Year's Eve ball-drop ceremony died Wednesday.
