Gatlinburg Christmas parade traffic in PF ? Visiting 7th-8th

We are staying 2 nights on the 7th and 8th for our 13 year anniversary.

We are staying in Pigeon Forge. I realized that the Gatlinburg Christmas parade is the 7th.

How do you think this will affect the traffic in Pigeon Forge ? Do you think we will have a problem getting into town (traffic back up,etc). ?? Our check in time is not until 4pm.

We live close in Kingsport so we have been to the area many times but never during the Christmas parade. (We are not going to the parade).

It doesn't really affect the traffic in Pigeon Forge. If you are going to Gatlinburg that day, you will want to be in Gatlinburg no later than about 5:30 p.m. or you could get stuck on the lower end of Gatlinburg or the Spur. If you do not want to get stuck in Gatlinburg for the Parade, I would head out of town before 6pm.

They will start stopping traffic on the Parkway in Gatlinburg about 6:15-6;30 p.m.
