Winterfest in Sevierville TN

On Monday we attended our first outdoor Baptist rock concert :). On my way home for lunch I heard an advertisement for "Winterfest". I didn't really know what it was but they said there would be Christmas lights, music, and lots of games for the kids. After work we were already on the South side of Knoxville looking for mattresses for the kids new bunkbeds, so we decided to head on over to Sevierville.

We didn't know exactly where we were going so we asked some high school girls at a stoplight if they knew where we were supposed to go. They gave us very simple directions and we arrived ~6 p.m. The city of Sevierville was hosting the free event. There were booths, inflatables, carnival games, and live music. Local businesses provided free food and drinks in the booths and local christian bands were playing music on stage. It was a lot of fun to be standing outside on a chilly fall evening singing Rocky Top and dancing with the kids.

We had popcorn, cotton candy, hot chocolate and cider. Santa came and turned on the lights and then there was a firework show with Christmas music blasting in the back ground. We had a grand old time :)
