The Titanic Museum will be hosting a “Noon Year’s Eve Celebration” for the kids on December 31st. Kids can wear their pj’s and the cost is only $10 for children 12 and under and $28.50 for adults.

What a fun way to let the kids have their own celebration!

Why not spend New Year’s Eve at the Smoky Mountain Opry? They will run their “Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry” show starting at 8pm, followed by a viewing on the big screen of the ball drop in New York City’s Time Square.
