Let Old Man Winter Fade Into Memory As You Embrace Our Smoky Mountain Springfest


Spring Flowers

It seems that everyone I talk to, has a story to tell of an unusually cold winter that is still gripping parts of our country. Despite the duration of cold temperatures, that combined with a prolific variety of precipitation, winter is slowly giving way to spring.  If you desire an escape into spring,  join us for the Smoky Mountain Springfest.  This three month celebration has already started, but Mother Nature is just beginning to participate.  Springfest continues into the second week of June and is focused upon Gatlinburg and neighboring communities in the East Tennessee Smokies.  Visitors will find city streets loaded with baskets of beautiful blooming flowers and plants.  Now the forces of nature are joining in to amp up the festivities.  The daffodils and tulips are bursting into spring glory and are supported by the early blooming trees and shrubs.  Quince, forsythias, Bradford Pears, and Star Magnolias are coming into flower.

As the season progresses, the wild flowers and dogwoods join with Eastern Redbuds to color in the oncoming green of our woodland forests.  For the upcoming Easter weekend, weather looks sunny and quite warm.  Area churchs welcome visitors to services throughout the Smokies.  Gatlinburg will have their annual Easter morning Sunrise Service at Ober Gatlinburg set among the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community has their annual Easter show from March 31st through April 3rd. 

The warmer weather also heralds a new season of great southern barbeque.  April 22nd will be a date for Gatlinburg’s Ribfest & Wings.  Vendors from all over the Southeast will tempt you with their secret receipes for ribs and wings as the sweet scent of hickory smoke perfumes the air.  Simultaneiously, from April 21st through April 25th you can join in the 60th Annual Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage and Greener Living Expo.  This event offers nature hikes of varying degrees of physical challenge that allow you to explore plants and wildflowers of the Great Smoky Mountains.  There are classroom lectures and automobile excursions that compliment the hikes. 

May’s entries in the Springfest includes, Gatlinburg’s Scottish Highland Games and Festivals May 14th through 16th.  Scottish games, bagpipe music, dancing, and food, combine with a parade to create a great time.  This event shares center stage with Gatlinburg’s Fine Arts Festival on May 15h & 16th.  Both events are family oriented with activities and food for everyone.  You can find details of the Fine Arts Festival in one of my earlier blogs or by visiting http://www.gfaf.net/.  My wife Jessica Weiss will have a booth displaying her custom jewelry.
