On Saturday, December 27th at 8:30pm, downtown Raleigh bar King’s will host the 2nd annual Dog Show with proceeds benefiting the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Admission is $10 to enter your canine and compete and $5 to attend a watch the fun. (Must be 18 or older to attend.)
First Night Raleigh is downtown Raleigh’s annual New Year’s celebration. For only $10, you have access to every performance and venue – over 100 performances in three dozen locations. The event culminates with the Raleigh Acorn being lowered to ring in the New Year. An abundance of children’s activities happens from 2 – 6pm but for the older ones the fun continues after dark as well.
