If you want to get philosophical on the subject of celebrating New Year’s Eve, consider how mankind throughout the world celebrates the end of one year and the birth of a new year with the same fireworks explosion in the sky. We literally end the year with a bang and bring a new one in baptized with fire! Of course, the reality is that we don’t really celebrate New Years with fireworks for that deep a purpose universally, we just like having a reason to shoot them off.
As a major vacation provider in the South, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg provide a handful of New Years Eve celebration opportunities on the 31st of December each year and you can enjoy them with any depth of philosophy you wish. Each year, we can expect a few events from municipal providers with a numerical majority happening individually at restaurants, attractions, bars and such places. The events we’ll detail here are the ones we typically expect each year as part of the awesome New Years’ tradition with maybe a few changes to keep each year fresh with excitement.
