christmas parade

My husband and I would like to come for the parade. My question is - Would it be better to come the week of the parade or come on friday and stay the week after the parade? We are trying to see which week would less crowded. Thanks

We tend to be pretty quiet the next two weeks after the Thanksgiving Holiday. It's the quiet time before the busy Christmas week.

We have been to the parade many times and it's wonderful. I think either way you should be fine. It tends to get busy in Gburg early that a.m. and most stay the whole weekend. I would not recommend arriving on Friday unless you can get there really early that day. We had some friends try to join us one time and they did not make it for the parade because traffic increased their travel time so much. We tried to stay in Pigeon Forge one time too and it took us almost 2 hours to get into Gburg and to get back afterwards.
