The Town of Greeneville announces the return of Midnight on Main, an all-ages New Year’s Eve street party. Ringing in 2023 will mark the 9th year for this popular downtown event that occurs on two blocks, centered at Main and Depot Streets. Inspired by the Art Deco neon marquee lights of the Capitol Theatre, the theme for this year is “Let’s Glow Crazy!”
Starting at 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 31st, partygoers will have several options to glow the night away. The entire event will culminate with a ball drop filled with resolutions and an amazing rooftop fireworks show at midnight. Party favors will be given to the first 100 people, including hats, noisemakers, and glow accessories.
The Kids’ Zone will be set up in the Fellowship Hall at the First Presbyterian Church on Main Street. Volunteers from FCC Greene will set up a game room complete with cornhole, oversized Jenga, oversized Connect 4, table games, and a bounce house for smaller children. There will be music and dancing as well. Parents or guardians are required to stay with their children at the Kids’ Zone.
DJ Snapper will be spinning the tunes for an all-ages dance party at the intersection of Main and Depot Streets. At 9 p.m., Bayou Bee will lead the dance party in popular line dances and Zumba routines. The food truck court will include Top Hot Dog Stand of Greeneville, Trucky Cheese macaroni and cheese food truck, Floyd’s Snack Shack, and What the Fluff cotton candy. Maggie’s Designs will be offering glow-in-the-dark face painting.
