>The New Year’s Eve party began Tuesday morning in Georgia’s newest (but temporary) metropolis, Motor Home City, just north of the Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta.

Dozens of Virginia Tech and Tennessee football fans drove their huge homes on wheels here to celebrate their teams making it into Thursday night’s Chick-Fil-A Bowl.
