Well sir, it's the last month of the summer season, but even though folks will be going back to school, our early August blog entry is full of things to talk about. Let's look:
* Our 30th Anniversal Special for August *
End of Summer Special – stay 4 nights and only pay for 3 nights or stay 7 nights and pay for only 5 nights. Let us know you are a Past Guest and receive an additional 5% off. (Valid on any condo or cabin, cannot be combined with any other special or promotion.)
* Special Events *
We actually have quite a few for this month and they're less of the "party" variety and more of the homegrown local flavor for something more potentially and personally enriching. These events include Stringtime in the Smokies in Pigeon Forge on August 6th (Old Mill Square), the Smoky Mountain Singer-Songwriters Festival between August 24-28th (all throughout Gatlinburg) the Heroes Tribute to Veterans and First Responders in Pigeon Forge between August 15-18th at the Smoky Mountain Resort Convention Center and, finally, the Welcome Home Veterans Parade on August 27th.
More information on these events can be found on www.mypigeonforge.com/events and www.gatlinburg.com/events with the latter two being part of Pigeon Forge's Celebrate Freedom - which leads us to:
* Celebrate Freedom *
Throughout the month of August, the city of Pigeon Forge initiates "Celebrate Freedom", where many businesses offer discounts to current and former military personnel as well as currently employed emergency personnel/first-responders. The full list of what which businesses are offering discounts can be found here.
And of course, Deer Ridge continues to offer the best military discount (27% off!) for lodging in the area whether it's August or not. See our military discount here.
* Sunset Festival *
Not an August event here, but it's good to talk about it anyway as we're already taking reservations for our famous Sunset Festivals here at Deer Ridge. Sunset Festival is each Saturday of the month of October where we host a small soiree on our big sun deck and bask in the changing colors of autumn with the Best Views of the Smokies spread miles in front of us. We offer free dinner for this event and it's every bit as wonderful as it sounds. Reserve today to get your place in time for Sunset Festival!
Wow, that's a mouthful. Don't let August be the final authority on the end of your summer, come see what the month could offer you at Deer Ridge.
