In the Smoky Mountains, as anyone who has ever visited us would know, we take our special events seriously. Our Harvest Festivals are saturated with colors, our Springs are brisk with bloom to spare, our Summers are wall-to-wall attractions and special events and our Winterfests are full of holiday cheer.
And during New Years Eve, we both end AND begin the years with a bang!
Come to Gatlinburg for the big New Years Eve party where there will be many restaurants and local places celebrating the event. There will be entertainment leading up to final countdown, and then the epic ball drop at the final seconds of 2012 that ends with an EXPLOSION of fireworks on the Space Needle in the center of downtown Gatlinburg. More than 15 minutes of colorful sparks and flames will fire from the tower.
Gatlinburg is only a short ride away from Green Valley in Pigeon Forge; just 10-12 minutes driving or you can even take a trolley to connect to Gatlinburg and enjoy the festivities. Go on out, have the time of your life, ring in the new year, and then come back to our comfortable beds, in our comfortable rooms, for a well-earned rest. www.greenvalleypigeonforge.com.
