Every day, every month, every season, and every year seems to bring something new and exciting to the city of Gatlinburg. Activities and events are constantly available for visitors of our beloved town in the Smoky Mountains. October of 2010 is slated to be a month of celebration of the colors of Fall. From cookouts, to decorating contests, the events in Gatlinburg during October are all centered around the beautiful season. Event planners focus on getting people out and about. We’re a friendly city, and October is a month full of friendly activities.
Here’s a rundown of some of the great events in Gatlinburg set for October 2010:
Gatlinburg Farmer’s Market– This event began in early August and runs through November 20th. Farmers from the region come to downtown Gatlinburg and sell their crops to visitors from 8am to 11:30 am on Saturday mornings. The market is located in the parking lot of Alamo Steakhouse.
Ober Gatlinburg’s Oktoberfest – Being held from October 1st to October 31st, Ober Gatlinburg’s Oktoberfest celebrates the season with a Bavarian style event that includes food, drinks, and music.
Ripley’s Nights of Halloween at Haunted Adventure– Ripley’s is celebrating Halloween all month long at their annual Fright Nights at their Haunted Adventure location in Gatlinburg. Attending a “show” is a lot like touring a haunted house, but Ripley’s beefs up the tour by adding special spooks and extra cast members during the month of October. The special Halloween shows will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights during the month of October. Children under 6 are not permitted into the show due to the graphic nature. Tickets range from $7.99 for children to $12.99 for everyone over 12 years of age.
Hazzard Run- The Dukes of Hazzard show made General Lees cars famous during it’s run on television. This is the second annual Hazzard Run. During the run, cars will be displayed in the area surrounding Cooter’s Place in downtown Gatlinburg. There is no admission charge to view the cars and to visit with Ben Jones (the actor who played Cooter Davenport) and Rick Hurst (the actor who played Deputy Cletus Hott.) The actors will be available to sign autographs throughout the event. Over 30 General Lees and Hazzard County cars will be displayed during the event.
