Gatlinburg’s SkyLift Park is doubling down on the Christmas cheer.

As we head towards a topsy-turvy holiday season, the park is ramping up the joy (and the wattage) with a Lights Over Gatlinburg display featuring twice as many lights as last year’s spectacle.

Take that, 2020!

Beginning on November 13 and running daily through January 31, nights at SkyLift Park will be lit up with more than 40,000 lights including a 300-foot tunnel of lights on the SkyBridge, a 30-foot Christmas tree structure with lights animated to music, and more.

“Gatlinburg is an unforgettable experience during the holidays,” Randy Watson, SkyLift Park general manager, told WBIR. “With beautiful trees and bright lights on every corner during the season, we’re proud to have had our inaugural Lights Over Gatlinburg display recognized with a national award and to have seen it be the most popular event in the history of the SkyLift Park. And we’re certain this year will be even better and brighter.”

Lights Over Gatlinburg will be open daily and access is included with your SkyLift Park admission ticket.
