Clarksville Celebrates the New Year

 

Clarksville, TN – Celebrating New Year’s Eve means many different things to individuals. Some people need to be with lots of friends; others prefer to celebrate with only one special person. The Clarksville New Year’s Eve scene was full of fun, fellowship and fantastic flutes filled with bubbly concoctions as people gathered together to bring in 2012. An overview of the party scene includes not only clubs with music, dancing and friendship but special venues where late night frolicking in the pool can help to light up the night.

In addition to the great music, you could find Beer Pong at the Gilroy, Karaoke at Kelly’s On Franklin Street, and McKenzie’s Lounge; a limbo contest and palm reading at the Coup; and  portraits at the Hilton Garden Inn. The Pinnacle was packed with people spending New Years Eve bowling.

In Historic Downtown Clarksville the turn out for New Years Eve out was down, and according to one business owner has been going down for several years. This could be a direct result of the popularity of venues in other parts of the city.

At the Indoor Aquatic Center 15-20 young people gathered for a New Years Eve pool party. The brand new event will likely become more and more popular as the word spreads about this as a kid friendly New Years Eve destination.
