Now we enter the prime of the Autumn season with Harvest Festival in Pigeon Forge.
All throughout the mountains, those magical colors have already started their full bloom and we'll be seeing the zenith of them within the next couple weeks. Dollywood begins it's annual Southern Gospel and Harvest Celebration on Oct. 3rd and lasts through Nov. 3rd. This festival features a full month of nonstop Gospel performances by the best in the industry along with artists and crafters who come to the park to show off the skills handed down to them by the generations. Well worth the price of admission!
There are also two different Oktoberfest events in the Smokies as well. Wears Valley, between Pigeon Forge and Townsend, will be having one that caters more to the Autumn celebration of the mountains (http://wearsvalleychamber.com/) while Ober Gatlinburg holds a traditional German theme for theirs (http://www.obergatlinburg.com). Both are well worth the efforts to attend!
As always, there's a lot more to do in the Smokies than we can fit here, so be sure to come out and see some of it before it's gone! www.greenvalleypigeonforge.com.
