Have a Sweet Mother’s Day in Gatlinburg

May 06, 2019

Over 80 small businesses will be on hand for demonstrations, fun, and some terrific shopping! Next, stroll along Gatlinburg’s downtown area for store-made taffy and hand-dipped candied apples, a myriad of specialty shops, and dozens of flavors of the city’s favorite potent potable – locally made moonshine. Lastly, stick around for Memorial Day on May 27, when Ripley’s Mermaids return to the Aquarium. Catch a live show, attend a meet and greet, or have a photo taken with one of these gorgeous creatures, who will remain for the spring and summer season through Labor Day Weekend.
