Can you believe that its just past Halloween? Last weekend children across the country will transform into ghosts, fairies, Power Rangers, and Barbies, not to mention eat too much candy but have so much fun doing it! That means that November is nearly upon us, bringing Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and finally the New Year.
Each year the people of Gatlinburg prepare for this wonderful time of year by holding the Winter Magic Kickoff. On this day the downtown Parkway will be awash in lights as the switch for 3 million lights is flipped! It is a beautiful sight that you just don’t want to miss, and it will really get your family in the mood for all of the fun events that this season brings.
However, this festival isn’t just about the lights. There is also a chili sampling from several of the area’s restaurants, live entertainment featuring some of the best local talent that the Smoky Mountains has to offer, and will finally be topped off by a fireworks display later that night. And it’s only minutes from Elk Springs Resort Luxury Gatlinburg Cabin Rentals. The Winter Magic Kickoff is a good, wholesome time for the whole family.
This coincides with one of the most beautiful times of the year in Gatlinburg, when the weather is just perfect for long hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, followed by long soaks in your own hot tub. Bring some meat for the gas grill and plenty of hot chocolate and marshmallows, as well as some holiday movies to watch on the flat screen TV in your luxury cabin rental. There is nothing like taking a little vacation before the holiday madness really sets in.
If you have any additional questions about our luxury cabins or how to reach the Winter Magic Kickoff downtown, please feel free to contact our Gatlinburg Cabins main office.
