Get out your noisemakers and your party hats, Fayetteville. It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2013, and hello to the future.
New Year’s Eve is just a few days away, and we’ve compiled a list of as many local celebrations as we could find to help you ring in 2014 in style.
We’ll likely be adding to this list over the next few days, but here are the live music and entertainment events we’ve found so far. Feel free to let us know about anything we’ve missed in the comments.
Happy New Year, everyone.
