If you’re in Sevierville for New Year’s Eve, head on over to Gatlinburg for the area’s most spectacular New Year’s display. Gatlinburg’s space needle in the middle of downtown is where all the action takes place around 11 pm Friday. Vendors will be handing out free party favors such for everyone who chooses to brave the crowds downtown in search of a memorable close to 2010. At midnight the ball will drop from the top of the space needle and fireworks will light up the night as everyone in the streets celebrate New Years in Gatlinburg, TN.
While you’re sure to see the show from the street, some of the best vantage points are from the balconies of hotels on the opposite side of the street from the space needle – that’s if you can secure a room. But don’t worry, there are also a handful of parking garages in the area that are good spots if you can get up top. Just look for the top of the space needle and you’ll be fine. If you are planning on driving out of Gatlinburg that night, park along River Road or on either end of town. Try not to park downtown… the closer you get to the space needle, the more likely you’ll end up staying the night.
