NASHVILLE, TN - The landscape is changing and the streets are filling with people.
   
Downtown Nashville is gearing up for three straight days of celebration-- with more events than ever-- from the Music City Bowl to the New Year's Eve Bash.
   
Hotels and restaurants are feeling the boom.

Kevin Callaghan and his family walk through the Omni Hotel downtown, soaking in the sights and sounds of Music City on this holiday weekend getaway from their home in Atlanta.

They're here mainly for the live music, something that'll kick up a notch further starting on this large stage downtown with the Titans game Sunday.

Birmingham resident Dori Syx is going to that game with her husband.

It's part of their getaway, celebrating their anniversary.

They're staying in this brand new hotel on Fifth Avenue South.

Almost all of the 800-rooms at the Omni are sold-out.

The coordination of Monday's bowl game with new years eve events is no coincidence.

The tradition also includes battle of the bands on Broadway Sunday night.

The music note is hung Saturday for Tuesday's new year's eve drop.

And on that night alone, record-breaking attendance of 75-thousand people is expected on this street.

To get all those people downtown, the Convention and Visitors Bureau has coordinated 5-dollar parking at LP Field for a quick walk across the Shelby Street bridge to downtown.
