FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- Last-minute preps are being put in place for one of Fayetteville's biggest New Year's Eve parties. Organizers with 'Last Night Fayetteville' expect nearly 3,000 people to surround the downtown square Tuesday night.

Volunteers began the set-up process on Monday, and there's a lot to do. There are six indoor venues, a 'Hog drop' at midnight, and a finale complete with fireworks!

"TripAdvisor.com named us one of the 10 most unique New Year's Eve celebration's in the country last year, so I think it's pretty safe to say there's a lot do to and to have fun with!" says Executive Director Lauren Embree.

All that fun requires a lot of planning, and organizers say the process started very early.

"We started this year's festival before last year's festival was over, and we're already looking at 2014," says David Embree, production director for the event. "We have an army of about 100 volunteers, paid staff of two, and as I said, over 100 artists and performers."

The fun starts at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 31. You can buy tickets at the event, or CLICK HERE to get them early!
