No matter what time of year you visit the Great Smoky Mountains, one thing you can almost always count on is a unique special event taking place. Even as we transition from winter to spring, there’s plenty going on in the cities of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to help families create new memories on their Smoky Mountain vacations.
This week, we’ll run you through a quick overview of just some of the special happenings that are taking place around the area. Some of them are simply promotional events being offered by area attractions and shops, while some are industry events by entertainment professionals to which the public is invited.
• Teacher Appreciation Days – Two Pigeon Forge attractions—Tomb: Egyptian Adventure and MagiQuest—are offering discounted prices for education professionals through March 9. Call 865-548-1702 for details.
• Irish Month at Titanic Museum Attraction – Visitors who board this Pigeon Forge attraction during March will be able to experience singing, dancing and traditional Irish storytelling very similar to what many of Titanic’s actual passengers might have experienced.
