This free attraction opened in 2022 with 20 larger-than-life nature-themed outdoor lights displays along the city’s scenic Riverwalk nature trail. As you stroll along the trail, you’ll encounter stunning displays, such as walk-thru arches, a colorful 52-foot-long caterpillar, a 20-foot-tall ice fountain, and a 90-foot-wide section of colorful wildflowers, butterflies, flowers, and mushrooms! The Wonders of Light Trail spans the Riverwalk from the access point in the city’s Municipal Parking Lot to the approximate intersection of Old Mill Avenue and Butler Street. It is paved and mostly flat, making it wheelchair-friendly, and dogs on a leash are welcome!

2. Patriot Park

Another of the best places to see light displays in Pigeon Forge is right along Old Mill Square in Patriot Park! This lovely City Park pays tribute to our veterans with some very special displays, including a tank and a battleship, rolling waves (“from sea to shining sea”), and the American flag being raised at Iwo Jima – a 40-foot tall display! You’ll also find individual salutes to every branch of the country’s armed forces, filling you with both Christmas spirit and pride for our great country!
