Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Tens of thousands of people filled the streets of downtown Columbia for the city's Famously Hot New Year celebration.
The headlining event was a concert by R&B star Lauryn Hill. She was proceeded onstage by Dead27s, Susto, and Colorblind.
But the event wasn't just about the concerts. There was also a carnival for kids, the Main Street ICE rink, food, and of course, the big fireworks display at midnight.
News19 was out there taking photos of the thousand who enjoyed the event. You can see the best of those images in the photo gallery below:
