The Town of Greeneville announces plans for the fourth annual Midnight On Main celebration to ring in the new year on Sunday, Dec. 31.
Two blocks of Main Street will be filled with music, dancing, food and other festivities for all ages beginning at 7 p.m. DJ Joe Prokop of Big Show Entertainment will lead the lively street party, which is free to the public. A highlight will be the ball drop by Greeneville Light & Power System during the countdown to a spectacular midnight fireworks show above Main Street, according to organizer Amy Rose, the town’s Public Relations Manager.
“Once again, we’ll have three main venues for live music – General Morgan Inn, Catalyst Coffee Company, and the Capitol Theatre,” Rose said. “Last year, we added Karaoke at the Catalyst and a Kids Zone on the street, and both were so popular that we’re bringing them back this year.”
GENERAL MORGAN INN
The General Morgan Inn, an event sponsor, is offering admission to both its lobby and terrace for $35 for ages 21 and older. Doors open at 6 p.m. for paid admission. Ivy Road will perform in the lobby from 7 p.m. until midnight. DJ Robbie Britton will lead a party on the terrace beginning at 9 p.m. The $35 admission includes hors d’oeuvres.
