Usher in the New Year 2013 in the city of Charlotte
The largest city in the state of North Carolina and one of the fastest growing in the whole of the USA with around 750,000 inhabitants, the city of Charlotte is the USA’s second largest financial center after New York City. The city is however much more famous for its sporting activities and in recent years it has become a popular destination, especially for sport fans - Charlotte has one team in the top division in basketball and football and is considered the center of motor racing under the patronage of the NASCAR organization. Races are held at the Lowes Motor Speedway. Other sights worth seeing include the interactive science museum, Discovery Place and the Museum of Art Mint Museum of Arts. There are plenty of events organized in the city of Charlotte to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2013.
First Night Charlotte is Charlotte’s premier New Year’s celebration. It is a family-friendly cultural celebration taking place at NASCAR Hall of Fame, Outdoor terrace at Charlotte Convention Center, Bechtler Museum, Mint Museum, The Green, and the main stage located at Levine Avenue of the Arts! Artists, dancers, comedians, musicians and magicians will take to the streets and venues for you to enjoy! The activities culminate with a fantastic midnight finale show on the main stage. Take part in a stylish club-style celebration as you party on the crystal deck of The Aqua Lounge during New Year’s Eve Party at The Ritz-Carlton. This lavish four-hour party includes an open bar serving premium drinks, open seating and your favorite tunes played by a deejay, while you indulge in the panoramic skyline views of Uptown Charlotte from the 18th floor. Dance the night away and at midnight raise the glass with a Champagne toast and party favors saluting 2013. The New Year will be ushered in more spectacularly at First Night Charlotte - as soon as Queen Charlotte’s crown strikes midnight, fireworks will light up the night as a sign of hope for 2013.
