Show your Panther pride and help the Bechtler celebrate

Usually the weekend after New Year's Eve is slooowwww, but not this weekend. Thanks to the Carolina Panthers playoff spot and the Hornets taking on the LeBron-less Cleveland Cavaliers, the party continues. Let's get this party started. See you in the streets...

Fans can enjoy performances by the TopCats and Purrcussion Drum Line as they take center stage for a special appearance.

You must be 21 and older to purchase a ticket. The EpiCentre is open to the public; ticket purchase is not required to attend the pep rally.
