Although I was a bit upset about having to postpone our trip till Nov.5, I am happy that we will get to see the Christmas lights. Will the fall decorations still be out too, or will everything be down for the start of the Christmas season?

Also, where do the fire works get set off from?

What fireworks are you referring to?

I imagine you'll still see some fall decorations here and there for a few days, but when Winterfest starts, it's usually full tilt.

I am pretty sure that Winterfest starts the day you are going. We live a little over an hour away and usually go to eat on my husbands birthday 11/13 and there isn't any fall decorations left.

Originally on the Gatlinburg Chamber Web Page it had on it's schedule of events the Winter Magic Kick-off included the lighting of the lights... and fireworks.

Now they have updated the page with the complete days schedule including entertainment, etc. but does not mention fireworks.

We always go at Thanksgiving and to me it's the best of both worlds. You still have the fall decorations up for Thanksgiving and also the Christmas lights & decorations. Have a great time!
