  • We’re familiar with the world’s hottest New Year’s Eve spots. There’s Times Square, probably the most famous, and places like Rio de Janeiro that already have a great New Year’s Eve tradition. But Columbia, S.C. mayor Steve Benjamin has another idea. Why not take a Southern city, already a popular travel region for African-Americans, and make it into another storied New Year hotspot?

    Last year was the first for the Famously Hot New Year (FHNY) celebration and it kicked off successfully. Over 20,000 people from 23 states attended the New Year’s Eve festivities that included food, festivities and fun. This year, expect the event to be even bigger. The Wallflowers, BizMarkie, Atlantic Starr, The Reggie Sullivan Band and Terence Young will all perform.  All of this takes place on Columbia’s recently refurbished Main Street corridor, which has had million dollars of improvements made in the last decade.
