Gatlinburg Parade

Have you ever experienced the Gatlinburg Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade?  It is an awesome experience for those seeking the Christmas experience.   Why not make it a weekend of shopping and Christmas fun when you visit the Smokies at Winterfest time.  Kajun Cabin Rentals offers cabins that are conveniently located to just about anything you can think of to do including Smoky Mountain Christmas at Dollywood.

The Gatlinburg Fantasy of Lights parade is scheduled to go on December 7th starting on 7:30PM.

Here’s what Gatlinburg.com says about the parade this year:

“Gatlinburg’s most enchanting holiday tradition returns! Presented by Ole Red, the 43rd Annual Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade promises to be a spectacular celebration filled with marching bands, large balloons, dancers, and of course, Santa Claus. It all happens on December 7 at 7:30 p.m. from Baskins Creek Bypass to traffic light #10 in downtown Gatlinburg.

More than a dozen marching bands, full-scale balloons, and glimmering floats will take part in this year’s Fantasy of Light Christmas Parade, grand marshaled by celebrity barbecue chef Myon Mixon of “BBQ Pitmasters” fame.

Parade-goers are encouraged to arrive early to find a spot on the Parkway to watch the parade or you can purchase a bleacher seat to get one of the best seats in the house.”
