fireworks in Gatlinburg?

We might be staying on Ski Mountain Rd. in a chalet over the 4th weekend and are wondering if we might be able to see any fireworks from our chalet (just regular people shooting them off from their chalets). I know there are some in the town - but you need to be able to see the town in order to see them.

I really doubt it i have been there for other occasions and pretty much the only ones are in town. It's not quite like the beach and there not sold on every corner like at the beaches too. I am not sure if there illegal but not very common.

The Tennessee Smokies always have a great fireworks display at the Ball Stadium for the holiday. Check their website out if you are interested at www.http://tennessee.smokies.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t553

Hi helpmeplease67,

If you don't want to travel to town to see the fireworks, you may want to think about viewing them from one of the couple of Gatlinburg overlooks on the Gatlinburg Bypass.

I don't reccomend watching the fireworks from the by-pass. My wife and I tried that last year thinking there would be better views but there was very limited viewing from up there due to where they light them off in town on the 4th and the fact the trees are getting bigger all the time. As it turns out we only had to walk down the street a short ways from our B&B to see them perfectly (which we WILL be doing this year :) When they do the New Years Eve fireworks from the Space Needle, the by-pass is a great viewing area.
