Still looking for a way to ring in 2016? We have a few ideas for both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day across North Carolina:


1. Start your new year off Friday with a First Day Hike at one of North Carolina’s state parks. Most parks will have guided programs, and all parks will be open.



2. Ring in the new year Thursday with First Nigh Raleigh activities at the N.C. Museum of History and N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh.



3. Commemorate the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with patriotic music, historical reenactments with costumed characters and a dramatic reading of amendment’s text Friday at Tryon Palace in New Bern.



4. Swing in the New Year with Camel City Jazz Orchestra and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem Thursday at the Resolution 2016 Jazz Party.



5. Celebrate the arrival of 2016 with music by Strauss, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and others as performed by the N.C. Symphony Thursday in Raleigh.
