There are several events in Auburn for residents to ring in the new year with.
The Collegiate Hotel will host a New Year's Eve casino night.
Guests can play blackjack, roulette and craps. Guests can then cash in their chips for raffle tickets and a chance to win gift cards, vacation stays, original art and other prizes.
There are two ways to play. Non-guests of the hotel can buy in at $50 a person. This includes all casino games to win raffle tickets. Games are included for two guests staying at the hotel over the holiday as well as 10 extra tickets for raffle prizes, according to the hotel.
Both options include a midnight champagne toast. The event will also feature music and drinks available at bars in the lobby and on the rooftop.
Both Ariccia Trattoria and Piccolo at The Hotel at Auburn University will offer New Year's Eve events.
