Fourth of July 2018

Fourth of July 2018

Gatlinburg is known for their Midnight Parade on the 4th of July. Year after year people line the streets of Gatlinburg at Midnight on the 4th to see the floats and bands and crazy fun! Are you planning on attending the Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival? Year after year the Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival gets larger and larger and it’s well worth attending if you are planning your vacation around the 4th of July in the Smoky Mountains.

The Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival takes place at Patriot Park. Free parking is available at the Pigeon Forge Municipal Parking Lot on nearby Teaster Lane (between the LeConte Center and The Island). Free trolley rides are provided to shuttle people back and forth between the parking lot and Patriot Festival every 15-20 minutes beginning at noon.

Cosby Hollow Cabin is perfect to get away from it all but still be with in a short drive to where all the activity in the center of town is. Our guests appreciate the quiet that comes when you stay at Cosby Hollow Cabin and like that they can travel a short distance to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. If you like the North Caroina side we are also close to Asheville! Do you love to raft, we are near Hartford, TN also.

Enjoy the fourth of July and all the festivites the day brings, and then enjoy the peace and quiet of Cosby Hollow Cabin.
