2013 Grand Fall Rod Run
|As summer comes to an end and millions of visitors flock to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN to see the leaves change color in the fall, there is one last event that brings the town to life (well… to a stand-still really)… that’s the Fall Grand Rod Run September 12-15, 2013.
Headquartered at the former Grand Resort Hotel and Convention Center, the Fall Grand Rod Run, is the “sister” event to the Spring Grand Rod Run in Pigeon Forge, TN held in April.
If you have no interest in car shows, then it is highly suggested to avoid Pigeon Forge, TN September 12-15 as you will not be able to drive anywhere on the weekend. Also, you can forget getting a good night’s sleep if you’re close to the parkway. There’s something about revving engines and peeling tires at 3 a.m. that just gets people fired up.
Now, if you do love hot rods, car shows, rod runs, and Pigeon Forge, TN then you are in luck! You’ll be in heaven as you walk the parkway, cruise the strip, listen to classic music, scope the tweaked out cars, etc. The Fall Rod Run is a rodder’s paradise.
If you plan to park in a parking lot along the strip, keep in mind that all of the spaces between the power poles and the parkway are owned by the city and have been “free” and “open” for parking. Anything between the power pole and the businesses the spots are in front of are owned by the business. You may be told to move and then towed if you don’t move. Be respectful of the business owners as they are the ones that keep voting for car shows to return to Pigeon Forge year after year.
