New Year's Eve Cannon Blast

Celebrate the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 with a blast.  Fort Macon will once again be firing off its big guns in celebration of the new year.  This year there will be a free concert featuring the band "FAB" starting at 6 pm. The cannons will go off at 7 pm to correspond with 12:00 UTC.  Feel free to bring a folding chair and picnic meal similar to the summer concerts.
