Nearly 60,000 Expected Downtown For New Year’s Eve
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- New Year's Eve in Nashville might be wet and cold, but the party will go on.
The 2012 "Bash on Broadway" is expected to be the largest New Year's Eve party the city has ever seen. Officials expect close to 55,000 people to head downtown for the stroke of midnight to watch the music note drop and to hear some great music. Music group ‘The Fray' will headline the event.
For the first year, party goers won't have to stay until midnight to enjoy the fun. The Bash has created a family hour starting at 7 o'clock.
"We have Internet sensations Lennon and Maisy Stella and they'll sing a couple of songs for us and we'll actually raise the music note and have a few fireworks. That'd be a great opportunity for many of our revelers who may not want to stay up to midnight. We'll have a lot of fun things for families to do and then we'll go straight into our live music," said Andrea Arnold with the Nashville Convention and Victors Bureau.
Anyone wanted to join in the festivities can park at LP Field and take a shuttle over to the downtown area.
