Santa Hustle Smokies 5k & Half Marathon
Wilderness at the Smokies Resort
The holidays are a special time in Gatlinburg, and this year there’s no better place to experience the magic than the SkyLift Park – with the most popular holiday lights events in Tennessee.
Join us as the SkyLift and SkyDeck become a celebration of the holidays with Christmas decorations and thousands of twinkling lights, and take in the best views in Gatlinburg as you gaze out over town and deep into the Smoky Mountains while warming up around the fire pit with a hot chocolate or cider.
Next, make your way up to the SkyBridge which will become even more incredible as it is transformed into a tunnel of vibrant lights stretching out across the mountain to create a holiday experience you’ll always remember.
For 2022 it gets bigger and better! Our entire park will be covered with all things Christmas, with 20 NEW dancing trees along the SkyTrail, photo ops for the entire family, a HUGE 30 ft. multicolored Christmas tree along with lights on trees animated to music, and we are bringing back the famous 300 foot tunnel of lights on the record-breaking Gatlinburg SkyBridge! Explore the new 0.6 mile hiking trail behind the SkyBridge during the daytime, experience new views and unique experiences, and then come back at night to immerse yourself in the wonder of winter with Lights Over Gatlinburg! This is truly a magical experience that every visitor to Gatlinburg simply must see.
Lights Over Gatlinburg runs daily, and access is included with your SkyLift Park admission ticket at no additional cost. With a purchase of a SkyLift Unlimited Access Ticket, or online SkyPass, you can take in the views by day, then return that night to enjoy the lights, making the SkyLift Park the best experience and greatest value in town throughout the holiday season.
Come share the holiday spirit with us!
