What to do on New Year's Eve

VALDOSTA — New Year’s Eve has forever been a time for looking back to the past and forward to the future, a time for people to reflect on all those changes they want or need to make and a time for people to resolve to follow through on making all of those changes.

Of course, it’s also a time to party.

Young and old and in between will flock to local “hot spots” Wednesday night, dressed in their best party attire, for some New Year's Eve reveling. And with a little dancing, laughing, and merrymaking, they will countdown the seconds until 2009.
