Hope you bought a pair of goofy 2015 glasses, Fayetteville. It’s time to party.
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 2015 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. Be safe.
