Ober Gatlinburg

The holidays are meant for fun, which has never been more true than spending the holiday season at Ober Gatlinburg. Starting around the middle of December, you and your group can ski and snowboard, making this attraction the perfect winter attraction.

As long as your kids over the age of three, they can enjoy snow tubing down the specially designated hill, ensuring the whole family can get in on the fun. When not enjoying winter sports, there's plenty of other things to do like the Ski Mountain Coaster, a chairlift, and ice skating, to name a few options.

Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade

This parade is a favorite of visitors and locals alike. The Fantasy of Lights Christmas Parade happens in the downtown area and provides guests beautiful floats, marching bands, musicians, dancers, and the king of Christmas himself, Santa Claus.

This parade is scheduled to occur on December 4th this year. Make sure your group arrives early to get the best spot to view the parade and enjoy the fun.
