Hope you have a great time! My husband and I spent the weekend in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg and the lights were beautiful as ever. I think some of the displays had been moved to different places and it looked like there were some new light displays at the entrance to Gatlinburg. We watched a great show at Dollywood and the lights there were also wonderful.

I am pretty sure the lights are up until february, but at some point they change over to more of a valentines theme. Not sure when they change though. Some places seem to just leave up the wintery lights through out the end.

From your neighbor in Aurora, KY give the Smokies a great big "Hi" for me.Have a great time.

I would love to see the Christmas lights. We went about this time 2 years ago and we had a great time. I am hoping my DH and I can go around Feb 2nd because that will be our 39th anniversary and I really want to make that trip but DH doesn't know what I am planning. So we will see. I love the Smokies!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wish I was in...
