Car Shows Abound in 2013

Car Shows in Pigeon Forge are like the changing of the seasons every year. They’re a Tennessee tradition around here and you can literally tell what season it is by which car show is occurring that weekend.

Every year classic car enthusiasts from across the country travel to the Smoky Mountains to attend some of the many car shows that roll into town and align the Parkway. Rare and unique makes and models, as well as custom cars and shows specific to certain models, are showcased during the various car shows scheduled throughout the year. This includes the always popular Yellow Mustang show in Pigeon Forge  where, you guessed it, yellow mustang owners roll into town to flaunt their sun-drenched Ford muscle cars.

As mentioned, these Pigeon Forge car shows are characterized by the numbers of people that spend the day walking the Parkway, gawking at the cars, new automotive products, swap meet items, and interactive displays from vendors. Workshops are also available for those who are seeking answers to technical questions about autos.

If you’ll be coming to Pigeon Forge, TN for one of the 2013 car shows, take of look at renting one of the many luxury log cabins just minutes from all the action on the Parkway. Some of the BEST Pigeon Forge cabins can be found at local resorts like Sugar Maple Cabins, Majestic Mountain Vacations, Sherwood Forest Resort, and Pigeon Forge Cabin Rentals. Each are relatively close to the Parkway and offer a number of amenities like hot tubs, theater rooms, and extraordinary views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Shades of the Past Car Show Pigeon Forge TN
It’s that time of year again for the 2012 Shades of the Past XXX car show in Pigeon Forge, TN. Grease that hair back and dust off those poodle skirts. For lovers of classic cars, this is definitely a rod run you don’t want to miss. If you’re reading this, you probably already know about it and what it is. For those of you that don’t know about it and don’t have much of an interest in car shows or rod runs, then I highly suggest you do not come near Pigeon Forge between September 7-8.

The 2012 Shades of the Past XXX will take place on September 7-8 (Friday and Saturday) at Dollywood’s Splash Country in Pigeon Forge, TN. During the show (and the days before & after) the parkway will turn into a parade of rods, customs, and classic cars with people sitting in lawn chairs all down the strip. You could literally walk from one end of Pigeon Forge to the other faster than you could drive through all of the traffic. Husbands, if you’re coming to the rod run with your wife (who doesn’t have the same interests) I suggest you drop her off early down at Five Oaks Mall in Sevierville. That should keep her happy and occupied most of the day while you’re at the car show.
