3 Days of Christmas Parades
The Christmas season around the Smokies will kick off with a weekend of parades in Gatlinburg, Sevierville and Townsend. Like each town, each parade has its own charm.
Gatlinburg, Friday December 2
The series of parades begins in Gatlinburg on Friday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m. The 41st Annual Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade will start at traffic light 1A on Hwy 321 (East Parkway) and will travel to Hwy 441 (Main Parkway) where it will proceed from light #3 to light #10. Although you’ll have plenty of space along the downtown Parkway to choose a viewing location, you’ll want to get there early!
