CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

People planning for New Year's Eve celebrations ought to be planning for the cold too. 

Sunday, Charlotte is supposed to see one of the coldest nights on New Year's Eve we've had in about a decade.

Nearly 6,000 people are expected to ring in the New Year at Romare Bearden Park. 

The party, which includes a firework show, will be held outside in freezing temperatures so some people are on the fence about attending. They're not sure if they are willing to face Jack Frost as temperatures may fall well below freezing. 

Medic teams will be on site at the park. This kind of cold can take a toll on your body and with the wind chill, it'll feel even colder.      

If you will be outside for New Years, your best bet is to layer up and not stay in the cold for an extended amount of time.
