With endless decor, family-friendly events, colorful leaves and more, Halloween is a fun time to be in Pigeon Forge! Let’s take a look at the best ways to celebrate this spooky season in the Great Smoky Mountains:
Rocky Top Mountain Coaster is back with its annual Coasts & Goblins event. New this year is Family Friendly Nights on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday from open to close. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are also family-friendly until 7PM. Once 8PM strikes, live actors and spooky animatronics come out to scare the living pumpkins out of you!
Ghouls and goblins have come out to play at Crave Golf Club! Throughout October, check out Craveyard Nights and experience the Halloween spirit with a pumpkin painting contest, face painting, as well as appearances from some of your favorite spooky characters. Want to be crowned the Pumpkin King or Queen? Bring your very best painted pumpkin to the Craveyard by October 31, and for $5 you can enter the Painted Pumpkin Contest. The winner will be decided and announced on Halloween!
On October 27, the Pigeon Forge Community Center is hosting Spooktacular & Safety Day. This non-scary event is held just before Halloween and features music, a costume contest, haunted house and more. This event is free and a fun, safe activity for all ages. Safety Day will take place outside the Community Center from 3-7PM, and the Spooktacular will occur inside from 6-9PM. We’ll see you there for a spooky good time!
Great Pumpkin LumiNights, presented by Covenant Health, is just one of the fun things to see and do at the annual Dollywood Harvest Festival. Glowing pumpkin displays, tasty pumpkin treats, festive entertainment and many more family fun activities are waiting for you at the park through October 30, 2023.
The Island in Pigeon Forge is home not only to the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel but also a great variety of restaurants, shopping and things to do for the entire family. Join their FREE family-friendly Halloween event with trick-or-treating from 5-7PM and take tons of pictures with all of their autumn decorations!
