So you are enjoying a nice vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains, and you want to be entertained as much as possible. But the reality is, entertainment costs money and the economy has most of us on a fairly tight budget. No fear! Gatlinburg is a great place to vacation on a tight budget for reasons like this: Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales!
From June 15 through August 11, 2012, Parkway in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is the place to be for FREE entertainment. Every evening there will be singing, dancing, and storytelling. Guests to Gatlinburg during this exciting time will meet characters such as Big Hog, Horse Jaw Johnny, Selma the Spinner, Whittlin’ Joe, Dulcimer Man, Constable Jordan Salamander, Trout Catch Cal, Lady Mae, Taffy von Saccharine, and Goose and the Moonshine Boys all along the Parkway. Entertainment will also be provided by the likes of the Cherokee Storyteller and the Back Porch Cloggers.
So cross evening entertainment off your list while visiting Gatlinburg, Tennessee, this summer. Every night enjoy a good meal at Alamo Steakhouse and Saloon, Atrium Pancakes, Bear Creek Grill, Blain’s Grill and Bar, or one of the other excellent restaurants on the parkway, and then come on outside to enjoy free entertainment. If you aren’t yet full, don’t worry. Use the money you saved on entertainment to purchase yourself a treat at Berkshire’s Old Fashioned Frozen Custard, Blond Giraffe Key Lime Pie Factory, or enjoy a cup of Joe from Burg Coffees.
