Events in Pigeon Forge: The Titanic 5K
This event is sure to be a blast for everyone. It is a colorful day full of fun that benefits the East TN Autism Foundation. You don’t have to be a runner to participate in the event because walking is totally allowed. The fun and games start pretty early, so you should plan to leave your Pigeon Forge cabin rentals around 6 am.
This is a family-friendly event. In fact, there are three race options to choose from. There is the main Titanic Color Run, then there are two kid versions. One is for children aged 5-12, and the other is for kids four and under.
Early bird sign up lasts until June 30th, and then there is a price increase. However, those that pre-register for the race will get a few goodies for their troubles. The swag includes a t-shirt, two bags of color to toss, and a free ticket to the Titanic Museum! You get the fun and excitement of participating in the race, a complimentary visit to the museum, and you get to do a good deed by supporting the autism foundation. This may be the best event in Pigeon Forge!
Pigeon Forge Cabin Rentals
While you are in town participating in the run, you will need somewhere to stay that will keep you in the center of all the action. There are plenty of log cabins and condos to choose from when you search the Mountain Air Chalets website, but if you are bringing your whole running crew, you should definitely check out the Adventure Lodge.
This gigantic cabin is large enough to sleep 12 people, and it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. After a day spent running, you will want a nice place to kick back and relax, and Adventure Lodge will be just the place. The property is one of the most luxurious in the entire Pigeon Forge area, and it is full of amenities. There is a heated indoor pool, an arcade room, and a media room set up like a movie theater. You can also have fun playing corn hole or roasting marshmallows by the fire pit.
There are plenty of other Pigeon Forge cabin rentals available if this one is a little more space than you need. In fact, you can search the Mountain Air Chalets’ site by room number to find one just your size.
