Celebrate The Fourth Of July In The Smokies

4th of July Pigeon ForgeAre you planning to be in the Smoky Mountains this upcoming Fourth of July Weekend? There are numerous events and festivals to make your trip memorable. Sevier County likes to celebrate and the Fourth of July is no exception. Let’s take a look at a view of the scheduled events.

Gatlinburg is host to the “First Independence Day Parade In The Nation” with festivities kicking off at the stroke of midnight. With more than 100,000 people expected to be on hand for the festivities it is an event not to miss. The Parade will feature Women Veterans and other U.S. Heroes as the Grand Marshals. Joining them will be the 572nd U.S. Air Force Band, members of every branch of our military as well as vintage military vehicles and much more. During the day on July 4th Gatlinburg continues to provide entertainment with the River Raft Regatta (an unmanned floatables race), several free concerts and a stunning fireworks display.

Pigeon Forge also offers up plenty to do for the Holiday. 1:00 in the afternoon marks the kick off of the 23rd Annual Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival.The event is free and lasts into the late evening. There is a Kids’ Karnival Zone with games and inflatables, a large sampling of food from local vendors that are sold to benefit local charities and more. There is a Veteran’s Salute to participate in and the entire event is a strong show of appreciation to those who do or have served in the military. The tribute band “Hotel California” will be the opening music act followed by Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers. As evening comes the sky will be lit up with a fantastic fireworks display.

These events are one of many reasons the Smoky Mountains are a great place to live or purchase an investment property. Stats show that the dream of home ownership has not changed in America. With the low interest rates that are currently available housing affordability is at an all time high making the American Dream obtainable for more and more citizens.
