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

Christmas Lights & Santa Photo Events

There are several Christmas Events happening in our area.

Last year, my family went to Benson North Carolina to see Meadow Lights. It was so good, we are going back again this year. They have a huge light display, Concessions, Carousel, Santa Claus photo op, and an old fashioned candy store. Just be ready to wait in line (in your car and outside for their train) so dress warm. There is no admission to walk around, but they do charge for the train ride to see the lights (only $2).

For more information and directions, visit


Here are some links to other Christmas events… please comment if you have been before! I haven’t been able to try everything out yet.

Lights on the Neuse- Benson, NC

I know they charge Admission, but I don’t know much else about this one.

Jackson Brother’s Santa Events- Sanford, NC

*I know they have a train that fills up fast and their website has their holiday event hours of operation.


For other events in North Carolina, here is a great resource for Christmas/Holiday events around the state.
