Gatlinburg SkyLift Park Announces St. Patrick’s Day Events In March

Thursday, March 4, 2021

By popular demand, the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park, home of North America’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge, will continue to offer its themed holiday light display. With a 300-foot tunnel of vibrant lights across the SkyBridge and over 18,000 glistening green lights, the park will also have a 30-foot tall rainbow tree of lights with a pot of gold beneath it, shining shamrocks hanging from the bridge, rainbow-colored fire in the fire pit on Friday and Saturdays and more.

 

“The reception to these holiday light displays have been incredible,” said Randy Watson, general manager.

“We’ve been quite lucky to have had so many come out and celebrate the holidays with us these past few months, so we’re excited to pay a bit of that luck forward and join the City of Gatlinburg in the spirit of its new St. Patrick’s Day Celebration.”

 

The event runs from March 4 - 31, at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park. On March 19, the SkyLift Park will also be hosting a viewing party from the SkyBridge for the City of Gatlinburg’s Space Needle fireworks display for a special ticket price. The show will begin at 10 p.m. that evening, with the viewing party offered at a $39 a ticket. Tickets will be available for purchase on the park’s website, capacity will be limited.

 

Beginning the weekend of March 20, guests will have a chance to receive a souvenir coin if they are displaying their shamrock spirit, while supplies last. Even those at home can try their luck. The Gatlinburg SkyLift Park will be running a “Get Lucky” contest on social media with weekly giveaways all month long. Fans can follow @gatlinburgskylift on Instagram and “Gatlinburg SkyLift Park” on Facebook to learn more about the contests.

 

The event is included with every ticket, which is available at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park ticket office or online at gatlinburgskylift.com
