America's longest pedestrian suspension bridge is decked out in thousands of Christmas lights.


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Gatlinburg’s famous SkyBridge!

North America’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge is getting into the holiday spirit as part of “Lights Over Gatlinburg” at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park. Starting today, guests can trek across the 680-foot bridge that’s been transformed into a tunnel of vibrant lights stretching out above the glimmering town below.

Lights Over Gatlinburg will run from November 25 to January 31. Guests can enjoy hot cocoa and snacks at the SkyCenter, trimmed trees on the SkyDeck, and the sprawling bridge in all its festive glory.

“From Christmas trees to carolers and all of the bright lights in between, downtown Gatlinburg is a bucket-list destination for thousands each winter, and we’re thrilled for the SkyBridge to join the stunning skyline this season,” SkyLift Manager Randy Watson told WJHL. “Near and far, we want to excite guests with our newest traditions and ensure they make the best holiday memories with their families year after year.”

Through December 15, receive $4 off your admission ticket by bringing a new, packaged toy to the SkyLift Park. All the toys will go to the children of the Boys and Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains.
