Tomorrow is the big day – or should I say night – when Pigeon Forge turns on all 5 million lights for Winterfest! There will be plenty of fun and excitement for those who come to Patriot Park on Tuesday, November 8, for the traditional kickoff of Winter in the Smokies – this year, in honor of Veterans Day, the event begins with a Salute to Veterans parade on the Parkway starting at 4:30 PM. Many-Bears Grinder, Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs, is the special guest speaker for the night in the Park. Of course, Santa & Mrs. Claus will be along for the parade ride, in a specially prepared carriage.
After the parade, they will both be available for photographs – come to Patriot Park and capture a special memory for this Christmas season.

P.S. Sevierville turns on their lights tonight, and Gatlinburg turns theirs on Wednesday night!
