Pigeon Forge Fire Department Enjoys Fun Afternoon at Margaritaville Island Hotel

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (Oct. 11, 2016) Pigeon Forge firefighters and their families enjoyed a sunny afternoon at Margaritaville Island Hotel’s Roof Top Pool Sunday. Firefighters and their families were treated to an all-American cookout, games for the kids, magic tricks and live music by Chad McWilliams.  “We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firefighters for helping us this summer and for everything they do for our community all year,” said Margaritaville Island Hotel General Manager Kristine Harmon.

Many local community partners contributed  time and gifts to help make this event a success. Doc’s Magic Shop amazed children and adults alike with magic. McKenzie Farmer, a certified lifeguard, watched over the pool.  The Arcade  and the The Sweet Shoppe on The Island donated prizes, and Jenny Pink donated her time and artistic talents by offering face painting.

And, although the weather was a bit cool, firefighters did enjoy swimming with their children in the hotel’s heated pool.  “We had a good turnout and are so glad everyone seemed to have a great chance to relax and enjoy a fun afternoon with the family,” said Lori Lee Rouse, Margaritaville Island Hotel’s concierge who coordinated all of the children’s games and activities.
