For the past 35 years Gatlinburg Tennessee has held a Midnight Independence Day Parade. It is one of the most anticipated events for Gatlinburg locals and attracts nearly 100,000 visitors every year. The streets of Gatlinburg are closed late on July 3rd and at the stroke of midnight on July 4th the parade will start winding it’s way through downtown Gatlinburg.
On July 4, 2010 be sure to get your spot in downtown Gatlinburg for the Stand Here Fireworks Finale. There are thousands of people that make their way to downtown for this event. It was voted as one of the top 20 events by the Southeast Tourism Society. The fireworks will start shortly after 10 pm and last about 20 minutes. No seat is a bad seat, you might even be able to see fireworks from your Gatlinburg cabin (if it has a view of downtown, of course).
