The end of 2009 is almost here and Gatlinburg Tennessee has huge plans to make it the best New Years celebration in the Southeast. What better way than to bring in 2010 than with a spectacular fireworks display in downtown Gatlinburg TN?

Gather around the Space Needle in downtown Gatlinburg for a front row seat to the New Years Eve blast on December 31. 2009.
The party begins before midnight with various local bands and plenty of live entertainment and music. This live entertainment and music start at the Gatlinburg Convention Center where the performers and musical artists will entertain the crowds of people before midnight to kick off the New Years celebration. Go by Mr. Tablecloth, across from the Space Needle, to pick up your New Years Eve party favors.
The 2009-2010 New Years Eve celebration in Gatlinburg is totally free. That's right, it is all free. Free entertainment, free music and a good time when the clock hits 12 and the countdown begins. No tickets are needed.
Remember to get in to downtown Gatlinburg early because there are plenty of restaurants and attractions that are offering special New Years Eve celebrations.
