Thanksgiving fireworks! {Titanic Attraction in Pigeon Forge Tn}

 I have something to share with you for the Holidays!!

Titanic Museum Attraction closes Centennial Year with Fireworks Major Disney-style fireworks, holiday-themed events help wrap up 100th anniversary Pigeon Forge, TN – A year of paying tribute to the 2,208 souls aboard Titanic comes to a dramatic and energetic conclusion this Thanksgiving at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The night sky will be filled with a major fireworks show on November 22, 2012, to celebrate the lives and legacies of the ship’s passengers, crew and rescuers. It will be the largest fireworks event on the Smoky Mountain Parkway since the Titanic Museum Attraction’s grand opening in 2010.

“We wanted to end the Titanic Centennial year on a note of celebration and hope,” said John
Joslyn, expedition leader of the first private exploration dive to Titanic and co-owner of the
Titanic Museum Attraction. “We knew a fireworks show such as the one that helped open the
museum in 2010 was the perfect way to provide a celebration in honor of the passengers and
crew rivaling anything they could have hoped for if they had arrived safely in New York a
century ago.”

The Thanksgiving fireworks provide an opportunity to reflect on the sense of hope and wonder each passenger and crew member must have felt as they climbed aboard Titanic. It also provides an opportunity to look forward to that same sense of hope and wonder found in the Christmas and holiday season. The annual tradition of a magical snowfall from the ship’s bow will be renewed on Thanksgiving weekend and continue every Saturday in December. Father Christmas, dressed in a style most familiar to the children aboard Titanic in 1912, will also
be visiting the Pigeon Forge museum on those magical snow days to greet the museum’s guests.
Visitors to the Titanic Museum Attraction will also be able to view thousands of holiday lights, Edwardianperiod decorations, costumed merry-markers, and a magical Gift Shoppe brimming with original, one-of-a-kind gifts.
“Every day, but especially at Christmas, we remember and honor the men, women and particularly the children who sailed on the Titanic. At this special time, our guests truly experience what it was like onboard the ship in 1912, and how it might have looked on a Christmas voyage almost 100 years ago,” says Joslyn.
The winter events continue at Titanic Museum Attraction into January with the return of the attraction’s annual national ice carving competition on January 19, 2013. The competition, held under the auspices of the National Ice Carving Association, is an exciting one-day event attracting world-class professional and amateur carvers competing before a crowd of wonderstruck children and adults alike.

  1. It looks like a really interesting place to visit. I bet the fireworks are fun. I like the whole Father Christmas sticking with what would have been authentic then.
