There from Thursday (10/10) until today (10/12). It is the most crowded I've EVER seen it. It's worse than "Leaf Weeks" the 3rd and 4th weeks of the month. Park closure must be keeping everyone bottled up in town. Parkway is an absolute ZOO! Be sure to ride the Alpine Roller Coaster on Wears Valley Road. It's awesome....even for those of us in our 50's!
