November 07, 2017

Later this month, don’t miss the Gatlinburg Festival of Trees. An ideal kickoff to the holiday season, the festival will be held from November 22-27 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center's W.L. Mills Conference Center. You’ll feel as if you’re walking through a winter wonderland while gazing at the dazzling array of Christmas trees bedecked with all their finery. The event will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains. Finally, stick around until December 1st for the 42nd annual Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade, featuring lighted floats, balloons, bands, and much more. The parade starts at 7:30 p.m. For details on both of the above events, call (800) 568-4748.
