LUTHER — The North Bar and Loggers Landing in North Bar are coming together to host their annual New Year's Eve parties for the Luther area.

The parties will begin at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31, and last until closing time. The two bars have featured New Year's Eve celebrations since they both opened. Despite getting new owners earlier this year, the staff of Loggers Landing made sure the tradition would continue.

"Come see what our new owners have planned," said Loggers Landing employee Hope Ernest. "I think everyone will have a great time."

The North Bar will feature music by a DJ and party favors, while Loggers Landing will have the band Whiskey Bound performing from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. There will be champagne at midnight and food and drink specials all night.

"It will have a nice hometown atmosphere for a good old New Year's Eve party," remarked North Bar owner Sherry Mead.
