As promised here are a few more images from this spring’s Rod Run.
The 2010 Spring Grand Rod Run rolls into Pigeon Forge this upcoming weekend. Many of the classic cars and hot rods arrived early to enjoy the event as car enthusiasts from around the country attend this show. With yesterdays beautiful weather we though we would bring you a few photos of some of the cars already in town. We will try to post more in the next few days.
The Resort still has a few of their Cruise and Dine packages left for this week. The package includes 2 nights in a one bedroom condo and a $50 restaurant card.
Officials with Great Smoky Mountains National Park announced that road work on the Cades Cove Loop Road would be completed almost a month ahead of schedule. To celebrate the early finish the park will open April 24 to only pedestrians and bicyclists until noon then motorists will be allowed access that afternoon.
On Sunday April 25 the road will be open for the “Cades Cove Loop Lope” offering runners a once in a lifetime opportunity to compete in either a 3.5 mile or the full 11 mile loop. Organized by the park and Friends of the Smokies, the event will require participants to register in advance for the run. Participation fees are high ($75 for the 3.5 and $100 for the 11 mile) but all money will be used to support park projects. We have provided a link for further information on this special event, go to the Friends of the Smokies web site.
