This week marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the H.M.S. Titanic, which struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage on April 14, 1912 and sank within hours, killing thousands of passengers.
To mark the somber occasion and to remember the stories of those who set sail on the ship, the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge is hosting several special events this week to commemorate the anniversary.
On Thursday the 12th, the attraction will welcome Tim Lightoller—grandson of Titanic's second officer, Charles Lightoller—as a guest speaker. Starting that same day and running through the 21st, you can also see the original photo album of pictures taken by Father Francis Browne, a Jesuit priest who took the only known photos of life aboard Titanic at sea.
Finally, on April 14, Titanic Pigeon Forge presents A Night To Remember: An Original Musical Tribute to Titanic. The event will include excerpts from the Tony Award-winning Titanic the Musical as well as descendants from actual Titanic passengers and the lighting of an eternal flame.
And remember that we're in for awesome weather this week in Pigeon Forge. So be sure to get outside and enjoy it all on our Pigeon Forge zipline adventure.
