While New Year's Eve is on a Sunday this year, many revelers will be ringing in 2007 all throughout the weekend. And they are not the only ones. In Greenville Friday, we saw bar owners and police officers alike setting up for the heavy drinking weekend ahead. The State Highway Patrol reported 32 alcohol related deaths during the holiday season last year.
Officials recommend revelers have a designated driver or a hotel room this weekend so that you are not drinking and driving.
