Walk ANYWHERE in downtown Traverse City from the Wellington Inn this New Year's Eve! Ring in the New Year in beautiful Downtown Traverse City! If you can’t make it to Times Square to witness the Ball drop, the CherryT Ball drop is the next best thing! Each year, there is live entertainment and a giant glowing cherry descends onto the city followed by fireworks! The party on Front Street begins at 10:00 PM and ends just after the New Year! Remember, there is no car needed when you stay at the Wellington Inn!
