Smoky Mountain SpringFest March 12, 2013 - June 2, 2013
The holidays are over and the weather has turned bone –chilling. Many folks in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville look forward to springtime. Spring not only means new life and warmth, but in the Great Smoky Mountains, it is a time for celebration. From March 12 – June 2, 2013, the city will host the Smoky Mountain Springfest, a one-of-a-kind attraction that is actually comprised of a series of special events. As the dark and cold of winter fade, the city of Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas will come to life.
Visitors to the region will be treated to all of the wonderful sights and sounds of nature as it awakens, and they can attend any of the many festivals and special events. There is something for everyone. One of the most popular events is the Synchronous Firefly light show at the Elkmont section of the national park, which takes place June 2-10, 2013. Visitors will be treated to an awe-inspiring display of synchronous lighting from thousands of these special lightning bugs. The city of Gatlinburg provides a trolley service for visitors, and reservations are recommended.
People who love a good parade will love the Dolly Parade (May 10, 2013) that is a celebration of local country music legend, Dolly Parton. She serves as the Grand Marshall, and rides on top of an amazing float. Music of the Mountains (April 20 - 22, 2012) brings together the best of the music of the mountains—played on authentic instruments—and some of the most rocking bands around. Other fun events include the Bloomin' BBQ and Bluegrass (May 17 - 18, 2013) and the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage (April 23 - 27, 2013).
Couples interested in a romantic getaway have a lot to do when they come to the Springfest. The best way to make this experience shine is to stay in stellar lodging.
