Summertime Fun in the Smokies

June 03, 2019

First, don’t miss the legendary street performances that makeup Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales. This summer-long interactive, educational, and entertaining performance festival stars a variety of talented tale-tellers, costumed musicians, and gifted actors portraying local and regional “characters” who inhabited the area as far back as the 19th century. Performances begin at 6:00 p.m. daily all along the downtown Parkway beginning June 21, and will be ongoing through August 3. Next, parents can have an evening all to themselves after they drop off the little ones for Kid’s Night Out at Ripley’s on June 23. During this overnight funfest, the kids can explore the aquarium and participate in scavenger hunts and science experiments before camping out for the night in the Shark Lagoon tunnel.
