Gatlinburg New Year’s Eve 2016
If you are looking for a fun way to ring in 2017 then be sure to head on over to Gatlinburg, Tennessee! Gatlinburg New Year’s Eve 2016 is one of the largest New Year’s Eve celebrations in the Nation. It started back in 1987 and this year will be celebrating 29 years. Located around the intersection of Parkway and Historic Nature Trail at the base of the Space Needle, you can witness the ball drop and firework show!
“Platinum Selling country music star, Beau Braswell and rising country music singer, Cassidy Diana will perform a free concert beginning at 10:00pm near traffic light number 8, which is the perfect vantage point for viewing the ball drop. Sponsored by Yamaha Motor Company, Braswell is a six time AMA National Motorcycle Champion and two time AMRA World Motorcycle Champion. His passion for motorsports is reflected in his energy on stage.”
Great live music, fireworks, and then seconds before the clock strikes midnight, the ball will drop from the Space Needle welcoming 2017! The tower is lit with rhythmic LED lights, a beautiful display to ring in the new year with the ones you love! All the fun kicks off around 10:00pm, however, I recommend arriving in Gatlinburg early! There are plenty of shops and eateries to check out while you wait. Gatlinburg New Year’s Eve 2016 will be a night to remember.
For those who plan to stay in Pigeon Forge this New Year’s Eve, but still want a fun community celebration, the Island in Pigeon Forge is providing fun for the whole family. A countdown until midnight, fireworks, live music and attractions! The fun kicks off at 8:00 pm with dancing, music, and giveaways! At 10:45pm there is a FREE concert by Jackie Lee. That alone should be enough to get you there, have you seen this guy? He is crazy handsome! (look him up, you won’t be sorry)
Whether you ring in the new year in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, I promise you will have a night to remember. 2016 is coming to an end, whether it was good for you, bad for you, or filled with ups and downs you need to celebrate! 2017 is a new year, that will be filled with new memories, new experiences, and possibilities. Happy New Year from Resort Property Management!
