What a way for everyone living in apartments in Beaufort to celebrate the New Year. By kicking off Beaufort's fourth century and saluting its 300 years of history at Founders' Night II in the city's Waterfront Park Dec. 31. Bring your family and friends to the early evening event, before your evening celebrating begins.
The event will include musical performances by choirs from Tabernacle Baptist, Carteret Street United Methodist and First Presbyterian churches, Sumitra Stewart, Marlena Smalls and the Delbert Felix Trio; and historical interludes by locals Anita Singleton-Prather, Bill Harvey Jr. and Jeff Evans. The event is free and family-oriented.
Starting at 4:30 p.m. at Waterfront Park, the closing ceremony will end at sunset, around 6, with the bang of booming fireworks over the Beaufort River.
