The emerald will drop once again when the clock strikes midnight on Friday night as the City of Greenville's New Year's Eve Celebration returns to the Greenville Town Common.
Festivities for this year's celebration get underway at 9:00 p.m. on December 31. The event will include live music by The Afterparty Experience, multiple food vendors, a photo booth, the Emerald Drop Countdown and fireworks when the new year arrives.
This year's event will be the second one for the City of Greenville with the first one being held in 2019. Last year's event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers will be providing masks for attendees at this year's event if they choose to wear them.
The Afterparty Experience is a young, dynamic and energetic live band that features some of the region's most talented singers and musicians together with an on-stage DJ. Utilizing this innovative approach allows them to deliver continuous music featuring Top 40 hits and more.
Food vendors at this year's celebration include D's Shrimp and Grits, Williams Catering, Tula's Fish and Chips, Lime and the Corn, Sparky's Snowballs, and East Carolina Italian Ice.
The Town Common is located at 105 East First Street. For more information about the event, visit nye.greenvillenc.gov.
