2011 Fall Grand Rod Run

Car enthusiasts from all over the United States, as well as Canada, attend this annual event. With the Shades of the Past show having been the previous weekend, many cars and trucks either stay over for this show or come in early to pick that ideal location along the Parkway to display their vehicles. We thought we’d post a few images for those unable to attend.

Easiest Route to the Shades of the Past Car Show

With this year’s Shades of the Past car show being moved to Dollywood’s Splash Country parking lot, The Resort at Governor’s Crossing is your ideal location. With The Resort being just 3.2 miles from the entrance to the parking lot via Veterans Boulevard, participants can miss the heavy Pigeon Forge parkway traffic.

Don’t forget that The Resort is offering special rates for that weekend.

2010 Shades of the Past Car Show

017GRRA

The 28th Annual Shades of the Past car show in Pigeon Forge will have a new location for 2010, Dollywood’s Splash Country parking lot. After many years of being located at Smoky River Ranch in Pigeon Forge, show organizers have moved to this spacious paved parking area. This move will eliminate the mud and hopefully much of the dust that show participants have annually battled at the previous location.

With the move to this location, The Resort at Governor’s Crossing offers easy access to the Splash Country parking lot via Veterans Boulevard. The Resort is located 3.2 miles from the entrance of Dollywood & Splash Country. Don’t waste time being stuck in traffic, the third stop light after leaving The Resort puts you right at the entrance.

This year’s show will be held September 10th & 11th for all Rods, Customs, and Classic manufactured on or before 1972.

2010 Spring Grand 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.
