From nostalgic patriotic parades to community festivals with firework displays to myriad planned and spontaneous raft- up (boat) parties on Lake Norman, there truly is something for everyone here in the greater Lake Norman area this 4th of July. Get out of your home, save gas and have a great time!” I wrote this SEVEN years ago and it is still just as true this year. So, here is the run down on Lake Norman’s 4th of July festivities 2016:
Here is to new beginnings…2011 in and around Lake Norman!
Unlike my home town of Pasadena CA with the annual Rose Parade/Rose Bowl, Lake Norman and the greater Charlotte area don’t have one major New Years’ celebration. Our public celebrations are, for the most part, found at local restaurants and entertainment venues spread throughout Lake Norman and Charlotte. From 5-course dinners to rockin’ oldies bands, there truly is something for everyone.
The best sources for New Years Eve events in our Lake Norman area are LKNFun.com and 704 Events.com which are websites devoted to entertainment and dining information in the greater Lake Norman area.
The best way to find out what is happening in Charlotte is to pick up a free copy of Creative Loafing or go to their new website clclt.com or go directly to New Years Events. They even do hourly updates on their Food and Drink section.
Here are few highlights to wet your appetite:
First Night Charlotte : Arts / Museums,Community,Festivals, Holidays, Just For Seniors, Kids, Live Music, Night Life, Teen
Date: December 31st and January 1st.
Queens Landing: Joker’s New Year’s Eve Bash, New Years Cruise
Whether you enjoy a quiet celebration at home or party all night, I wish you all a safe and Happy New Year.
Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2011!
