Fall Events - My Pigeon Forge Blog

1. The Events

Great Pumpkin LumiNights are a part of the Harvest Festival going on at Dollywood. You will be amazed by the uniquely carved pumpkins that fill the Timber Canyon and Wilderness Pass area. There will also be glow in the dark face painting for the kids as well as a glowing maze. Be on the lookout for Harvey the Pumpkin, Vine Vinny, and their friends roaming around, ready to meet you.

The Halloween Spooktacular Event will be at the Pigeon Forge Community Center on October 25th. This event is free and is a less scary option from the traditional Halloween trick or treating. Local businesses will be handing out candy and there will even be a kid-friendly haunted house. It is a great way to enjoy a night with the kids!
