New Years Eve At The Island in Pigeon Forge

While The Island is not quite a new attraction to Smoky Mountain visitors by now, it does seem to be that visitors still aren’t accustomed to knowing that Pigeon Forge’s most festive city square and outdoor attraction complex is where a number of special events go on now. The Island joins in on fun for Halloween, Christmas, Easter and, yes, New Years Eve. Gatlinburg isn’t the only city shooting off fireworks at midnight on December 31st, The Island will be joining in with them along with live entertainment and the plethora of things to see and do there.
