Memorial Day weekend is one of the most exciting holiday weekends of the year as it represents the patriotism of this wonderful country and kicks off the summer season! Whatever your Memorial Day tradition may be, or if you don’t yet have one, consider amping up this holiday weekend by staying with Cabins For You in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, Tennessee! Here, you’re guaranteed to experience an outstanding vacation that will leave every member of the family wanting to come back again and again. Escape the mundane neighborhood cookout or stays at a hotel with an ordinary water slide, and treat yourself to an All-American getaway in the extraordinarily beautiful Smokies of Eastern Tennessee.
Whether your planning to stay in a Cabins For You cabin during Memorial Day with your significant other, family, or even an entire group, the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area is packed with unique opportunities to make your vacation unsurpassable. Like everywhere in America, the weekend exists to commemorate fallen soldiers of the United States who have given the ultimate sacrifice and fought for us to enjoy the freedoms we love to take advantage of today. For over 20 years, Bill and Gloria Gaither celebrate Memorial Day weekend with a three-day musical celebration called Family Fest. Every year, from Friday evening to Sunday morning, Family Fest offers an incredible line-up of artists whose gospel music and talent will leave your jaw dropped, along with an array of speakers to pack the weekend with exciting live entertainment. The tickets for Family Fest sell out incredibly fast because it is such a phenomenal event, so you shouldn’t wait any longer to order your tickets, otherwise you’ll risk feeling the regret of missing out on this three-day festival!
Smoky Mountain Thunder Memorial Day Ride
If gospel music isn’t for you, or your looking for additional ways to honor our fallen men and women in uniform, check out the Smoky Mountain Thunder Memorial Ride. This is a sixty mile motorcycle ride consisting of people from all over the country that have promised to never forget those who have fought for our country, whether it be veterans, police, or even fire and rescue men and women. Every Sunday of Memorial Weekend, riders meet in Sevierville, Tennessee, conveniently located very close to your rental in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. Before and after the ride are ceremonies and presentations that honor all veterans, so if you left your bike at home or don’t own one, everyone is welcome to join the ceremony after the race and celebrate the lives of those who we will never be able to thank enough.
