Celebrate the New Year in Dahlonega!

First First Night?

Not quite. Actually Dahlonega’s very first (and presumably annual) First Night celebration will take place this year on the last night before the first day of the New Year. First Nights around the country have always been called that so we’ll have to go with it.
