Pigeon Forge After Dark

From our campground in Sevierville (TN), we can drive south on the Parkway, pass the city limits sign, and immediately enter Pigeon Forge.

After about three miles of neon lights, entertainment centers, and restaurants, we reach the southern limits of Pigeon Forge. Another four miles passing through greenery and the foothills of the Smokies and we enter Gatlinburg.

In our opinion, Pigeon Forge is the entertainment center of the three towns. Even Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que (left) got into the glitter of the show palaces.

Adventure Quest seemed to set the stage for

the Loch Ness Monster

and the shark as the features at some of the attractions for kids.

The arcades shown in the next two photos were two of the most colorful exteriors along the Parkway.

The words on the arcade (right) changed from "Sit Down," "Shut Up," "And Race." Of course, I timed the shot to get the middle instruction.

And the winner for the most unusual building was the upside-down "Wonderworks." Even the marquee had the name inverted. The Hoot 'N Holler Comedy Show was one of the entertainment features there.

Finally, as we were leaving Pigeon Forge, I could have sworn I saw something that looked like a flying . . . pig.

I'm not sure.
