Smoky Mountain Winterfest doesn't officially kick off for a few more weeks, but if you're eager to start celebrating winter and the Christmas holiday period a little early, your best bet might be to catch a seasonal show at one or more of our area music theaters. It's already that time of year when most of the local venues switch over from their regular-season shows to ones that are more in keeping with the end-of-year holidays. From music to costuming to appearances by Santa Claus himself, these special productions are a fun and entertaining way to kick off Christmas in the Great Smoky Mountains. This week, Smoky Mountain Ziplines is sharing overviews of several of the holiday shows already under way.
There's been a trend taking place in the Great Smoky Mountains over the past 10 years or so. We've been seeing more and more dinner attractions come to Pigeon Forge, entertaining productions that combine multicourse meals with spectacular competition-based shows. The one that's been around the longest, the show originally known as Dixie Stampede, got it all started back in the '80s, and now several more have joined the ranks, giving area visitors more choices than ever when it comes to entertainment.
In case you haven't noticed lately, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have become some of the most magical cities in the Smokies. We don't mean that figuratively either. These days, there are no fewer than four different live magic shows taking place at different theater venues around the area. We guess you can chalk that up to the fact that magic is universally appealing and entertaining. Mankind has enjoyed not believing his own eyes for centuries, so it should come as no surprise that when traveling, 21st-century vacationers enjoy taking a couple of hours to lose themselves in a world of impossibilities.
During Smoky Mountain Winterfest, the communities of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville go all out to celebrate Christmas and the entire holiday period. That includes millions of colorful lights and dozens of seasonally themed events. Our local music theaters always get in on the act too, offering up special holiday versions of their usual stage productions. Whether it's music, magic or games of competition in the spotlight, if you take in a show between now and the end of the year, there's a good chance you'll wind up receiving a little extra Christmas cheer.
