• Thanksgiving in Gatlinburg 2017

    You may not know it to look at us and our specialization for 1 and 2 bedroom luxury condos that focus on coziness and amenities over accommodation size, but Deer Ridge has over 20 years of history in providing families big and small with the perfect Thanksgiving accommodations for their turkey days! One might not think a series of condos would be possibly BETTER at cooking Thanksgiving dinner and accommodating for dinner time, but think about it – multiple condos means multiple kitchens. One group works on the turkey, another works on the mashed potatoes and sides, one can do the dessert, etc. Has there ever been a Thanksgiving where one house and one kitchen ever offered you enough room to cook for so many? Then simply gather together in one condo for the big Thanksgiving meal and you and your family have the perfect accommodations for the event. The fireplace burning, a Christmas special on the TV and the views from the Smokies alongside it… what else could make it better?

    The Thanksgiving events in Gatlinburg, of course! Here’s what we have to report for this year’s activities:

    Gatlinburg’s favorite W.L. Mills Auditorium events are back on this year between 11/21/17 to 11/27/17, and this year it even extends right into the starting Christmas events in early December. Gatlinburg Festival of Trees (11/22/17 – 11/27/17), The Great Smoky Mountains Thanksgiving Arts and Crafts Show (11/21/17 – 11/26/17) and Winterfest Tunes and Tales (11/24/17 and continues on each weekend until the 17th of December). And then, quite literally right after the 29th, the the Great Smoky Christmas Arts and Crafts Show continues on from the Thanksgiving show listed above between 11/27/17 and 12/6/17. These can all be found quite close to one another and will greatly hype up the coming Christmas for this year, just as it has for years before that.

    Visit www.gatlinburg.com for more information on those events.

    Also, those who might be interested in seeing fireworks on Thanksgiving day should go visit the Titanic Museum on the parkway. On the 23rd, Titanic will be holding a fireworks show, having musical entertainment by singer Caitlin Mesiano, and even have their own “fantasy” princess there to entertain the younger guests. You can see more info on this at http://www.titanicpigeonforge.com/.

    We’ve still got some condos available for the Thanksgiving weekend and you can find those open reservations on the front page of www.deerridge.com.
