Happy New Year!

There are many events planned throughout Texas to ring in the New Year tonight.

Organizers in Dallas say the annual "Big D NYE" celebration will draw tens of thousands of people - perhaps forty thousand or more - and it's billed as the biggest New Year's Eve celebration in the Central Time Zone.
