View of Smoky Mountains with sun setting

August Brings Mermaids, Balloons, and the Gatlinburg Gathering

August 06, 2018

An array of brightly-colored hot air balloons will be inflated and will add their brilliance to the majesty of a summertime Smoky Mountain sunset. The balloons will not launch, but tethered rides will be offered, weather permitting. Next, don’t miss out on Mermaid season at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Through Labor Day weekend, these mystical beauties will perform live underwater shows. They will also be available for meet and greets, and photos. For more information on all of Gatlinburg's goings-on, call us at (800) 588-1817.
