All this week, folks in Gatlinburg are finding fun and interesting ways to celebrate Earth Day and help preserve our planet's resources. And the good news is that you don't have to be a local to participate. Here's a quick overview of what's in store.
The 63rd annual Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage runs April 23 through 27, offering more than 150 walks, tours, demonstrations and lectures that showcase and celebrate all the natural beauty of the area.
On Thursday the 25th, the Earth Day Festival takes place at Mynatt Park, featuring live entertainment, food vendors, crafts and exhibitors from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Keep Sevier Beautiful, the Gatlinburg Farmers Market and more.
On Friday, the Earth Day 5k Run/Walk takes place in downtown Gatlinburg, and on Sunday, there's a children's program at the Mills Park pavilion featuring seed planting and storytelling.
