3 Fun Ways to Experience the Winterfest Christmas Lights in Pigeon Forge

One of the highlights of the holiday season in Pigeon Forge is Winterfest, where the Parkway comes alive with millions of twinkling Christmas lights. While cruising along the Parkway, you will have the opportunity to see all kinds of elaborate displays, including the 12 Days of Christmas in lights. These displays stay up well into February so you can enjoy them all winter long! Here are 3 fun ways to experience the Winterfest Christmas lights in Pigeon Forge:

1. Drive Your Own Vehicle

Get the entire family together and sing your favorite Christmas carols as you drive past the spectacular displays, then circle around to see them again to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Don’t forget to make a pit stop at The Island in Pigeon Forge, where you can enjoy live music, carolers, custom decorations, and over a mile of garland. Whether you want to drive the entire route or just go a few blocks to your destination, you will feel the magic of Christmas throughout your Smoky Mountain vacation!

2. Double Decker Bus Tours

For those who prefer to leave the driving to someone else, hop aboard one of the Double Decker Bus Tours for a tour of the Christmas lights in Pigeon Forge. The double decker party bus will be decked out for the holidays and swinging with Christmas tunes, so join the festivities for a wonderful night in the Smokies! A huge part of the fun is riding on the authentic double decker bus where the driver sits on the right side, just like the ones in England. The Double Decker Bus Tours are approximately 2 hours and are perfect for family members of all ages.

3. Redneck Comedy Bus Tours
