New Year’s Eve events around the Chattanooga area

It’s that time again to ring in another new year, and while many of us will choose to ring-in 2017 at home — possibly watching Dick Clarks New Year’s Rockin’ Eve (now hosted by Ryan Seacrest) with performances by Mariah Carey, the multi-platinum selling band DNCE, international superstar Gloria Estefan, and country star Thomas Rhett…other might choose to go out for a night on the town in Chattanooga or even elsewhere.

No doubt about it, the biggest party in the state this year is in Nashville, where reports say over 100,000 will attend the festivities at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, but maybe you’re looking to enjoy a night out a little closer to home…? If Chattanooga isn’t too far, there’s plenty to do there and even stuff for the kids earlier in the day.

No matter how or where you choose to ring-in 2017 this year, please remember to do it responsibly and don’t drink and drive… Call a cab or a friend and be safe for the New Year! And Happy New Year from all of us at MarionCountyMessenger.com!
