First Night Raleigh

When: Sat., Dec. 31 2016

Now a twenty-six-year-old tradition, First Night Raleigh continues to expand in tandem with its namesake city. This year it will involve nearly one hundred performances, spread across thirty-five venues with a lineup rich in local offerings. Hedonistic pleasures abound: you can dance and groove, eat and drink, get your face painted in jewel tones, and ride a Ferris wheel. You can also investigate some potentially new habits for the new year: ballroom dancing, for example, or yoga, or a henna tattoo—all are supposed to be good for you. That's a lot to take in, but fear not, there's an app. As for midnight, the place to be is Fayetteville Street for a super-duper countdown, capped by the now-acornic Raleigh acorn drop and music by Jack the Radio and Birds of Avalon. —David Klein
