Gatlinburg will welcome the arrival of 2011 in unique style with its 23rd annual New Year’s Eve Ball Drop and Fireworks Show around the intersection of Parkway and Historic Nature Trail at the base of the Space Needle late Friday night, Dec. 31. The event is free and open to the public.

Leading up to midnight, popular musical entertainment will be headquartered on the balcony of the Gatlinburg Convention Center at the Historic Nature Trail/Airport Road entrance. A disc jockey will entertain the crowd prior to midnight, with party favors provided by Mr. Tablecloth available near the base of the Space Needle.

At the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, the Space Needle area will shine with a red glow from the surrounding rooftops at the beginning of a music program followed by a choreographed fireworks show produced by Pyro-Shows of LaFollette, Tenn.

“It has become a tradition for families and friends from across America to come back to celebrate the New Year here in Gatlinburg,” said George Hawkins, special events manager. “We expect to have another big crowd to help us usher in 2011 with their loved ones and friends.”

The entire city of Gatlinburg celebrates New Year’s Eve in a big way with many restaurants and attractions offering special celebrations. Lodging companies are offering special packages and entertainment.
