The Spring Grand Rod Run in Pigeon Forge is next weekend, April 12 – 15, 2012, and already you can sense the anticipation! I noticed a couple of classic cars parked alongside the main Parkway in Pigeon Forge, and I thought to myself, “Have they always been there?” Whether or not those cars have, in the next few days, thousands of cars, old and new, shiny, rusty, some really cool, and some just plain weird, will start showing up from all over the country!
“The Spring Grand Rod Run kicks off the car show season with classic Fords, Chevy/GMCs and Gold Wings. Thousands of classic car, truck and motorcycle enthusiasts make the pilgrimage to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville, Tennessee and the Great Smoky Mountains each year for the first, big Pigeon Forge car show. Pigeon Forge is a popular host to rod runs and car shows. Participants love to take their classic car or hot rod group on a Smoky Mountain scenic drive.
The participants in these car shows are so eager to get the weekend started that the Parkway and hotel parking lots begin to fill with classic cars on Tuesday of that week. The events feature more than just rare and unique autos, though. Throughout the event weekend, visitors can enjoy interactive displays presented by vendors from all over the country.
