The Music in the Mountains Spring Parade will showcase the rich musical heritage of the Great Smoky Mountains while spotlighting the variety of entertainment provided by the many theaters located in the popular vacation destination. Theaters located throughout the city also will have the opportunity to give parade attendees a glimpse of their respective shows.
We are honored to announce that Cal Ripken, Jr., a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and chairman and cofounder of Ripken Baseball, will serve as parade grand marshal this year. The Ripken Experience Pigeon Forge, a $22.5 million local youth baseball facility, opened on March 9, 2016.
Along with high school marching bands, dance groups, choral groups, and baton twirlers will be invited to march. Parade registration also is open to others who wish to celebrate the area's musical roots.
