Smoky Mountain Winterfest

Viewing Smoky Mountain Winterfest lights with friends and family is a great way to get in the holiday spirit. For added fun while viewing the lights, visitors are encouraged to make a quick stop on their way into town at the Sevierville Visitor Center on Hwy 66 (1.5 miles from I-40 Exit 407). There they can purchase a pair of Winterfest in 3D glasses while supplies last for only $1. The glasses shift each point of light into a snowflake, adding even more interest to the intricate light displays.

Special Winterfest attractions, like Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland at Smokies Stadium, add to the excitement. This one-mile drive through LED light experience features extras for the kids, including a petting zoo, pony and camel rides, photos with Santa and a Christmas tree lot (after Thanksgiving) and delicious holiday foods. http://www.shadrackchristmas.com/
