New Year’s Eve Local Events

Hey folks! I was going to write this really great post about local NYE events around town, but I ran out of time. So here are a bunch of links for events. Sorry for the late notice. You can imagine our festive adventures are much more low-key/family oriented than party party (hence the not planning ahead). Hope you all have a great one!


New Years Eve Party in the Park
Saturday December 31, 2011 | 6:30 PM – 12:30 AM | Festival Park

Bring in the New Year with live performances on the Bud Light Stage. The stage will include a live feed from Times Square.

This family focused event will also have a children’s area hosted by The Partnership For Children, that includes craft activities, inflatable fun (weather provided), an early New Year countdown at 8:45 with a firework show for the little ones that can’t make it till midnight. This area proves to be fun for all ages!

Location: Festival Park
Hay Street and Ray Avenue
Fayetteville, NC

Island of Lights New Year’s Eve Countdown

The New Year’s Celebration will be held at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk near the Gazebo. Don’t miss the giant lighted beach ball being dropped at midnight followed by a spectacular fireworks demonstration. This free family-friendly event will feature a DJ and dancing with refreshments and party favors available for purchase. In an Island of Lights tradition, there will be a raffle, with the winner taking home the original artwork for the 2011 official Christmas card and ornament. Bring the family to join the festivities.
