Around the country people are rolling up their sleeves, putting away sweaters and dusting of the old flip-flops. Here in Gatlinburg, TN we are watching as the foliage starts to change and its people find some more pep in their step; spring is a beautiful season here and we are ready for it!
From March 11 all the way to June 7 we herald the new season with our Smoky Mountain SpringFest. Baskets are filled to the brim with a gorgeous rainbow of colors from flowers like daffodils, mandevillas, pansies and bougainvilleas. Nothing says spring like the scent of freshly picked flowers floating in the air. Getting ready for Easter? Looking for something to brighten up your home? Come to the Convention Center March 31st through April 3rd for the annual Easter Arts and Crafts Show put on by the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community. Their handcrafted pieces are certain to delight friends and family when they come to visit, or even serve as an Easter gift!
When Easter comes this year on April 4th the folks of Gatlinburg will wake up bright and early to attend the 12th Annual Easter Sunrise Service. Starting at 6:00 AM, there will be free tram rides to the top until 6:30 when the service starts. What a wonderful way to celebrate Easter amidst the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Afterwards feel free to attend the breakfast buffet served at the Ober Gatlinburg Restaurant from 7 AM ΓÇô 10:30 AM.
If you prefer to stay in this Easter our Gatlinburg Cabins provide an equally amazing view of the mountains where your family can cook a delicious breakfast in comfort and enjoy it out on the porch. Afterwards go for a hike, lounge in the hot tub or even watch a movie in one of our cabins with a home theater.┬á The possibilities are endless, so start planning your dream vacation today!
