The New Year Shooters

Record #:
This New Year's Eve, around 20 Gaston County residents will spend between 16 and 18 hours travelling from door to door, serenading friends and family with a salute of musket fire. Loaded with black powder for a guaranteed loud and smoky salutation, the New Year Shooters are carrying out a German Tradition numbering some 200 years in practice.
