Gatlinburg’s 25th annual New Year’s Eve celebration will bring a touch of the big city to a picturesque small town. The ball drop and fireworks displays will give Gatlinburg a chance to ring in the New Year in stunning style. The dazzling 15 minute fireworks show will follow the iconic New Year’s Eve ball drop hosted in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg (at the intersection of the main Parkway and Historic Nature Trail at Traffic Light #8).
On December 31st, 2013, Gatlinburg will commemorate 2012 and welcome 2013 with an amazing display of lights and grandeur. You don’t have to travel to Times Square to watch the ball drop when you can enjoy a New Year’s celebration unlike any other in the heart of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. As the clock inches towards midnight, the ball will begin to descend as the crowd erupts into cheers to welcome the New Year. The electrifying atmosphere will make this New Year’s Eve party one to remember! The Space Needle will be adorned with red lights and accompanied by great tunes to keep the crowd brimming with anticipation.
