PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (August 8, 2013) – The night sky will be ablaze in colorful bursts of light and fantasy on Thanksgiving evening (Nov. 28) during the Titanic Museum Attraction’s second annual fireworks extravaganza honoring the lives and legacies of the ship’s passengers, crew and rescuers. The show is at 7:30 p.m.
“It will be the largest fireworks event of the year on the Smoky Mountain Parkway, and we look forward to celebrating a joyful evening with our community friends and neighbors,” announced John Joslyn, expedition leader of the first private exploration dive to Titanic and co-owner of the Titanic Museum Attraction.
“Since the Titanic Museum Attraction’s grand opening in 2010, fireworks have been seen as glowing tributes to the 2,208 passengers and crew who sailed on Titanic,” said Joslyn, “Our Thanksgiving fireworks display also serves to usher in a new holiday Christmas season of hope and promise for all of us.”
The annual tradition of a magical snowfall from the ship’s bow will be renewed on Thanksgiving weekend and will remain in the forecast for every Saturday in December.
To help make the season even brighter, Father Christmas, dressed in a style most familiar to the children aboard Titanic in 1912, will make special stops at Titanic on these magical snow days. Plus meet our Titanic ‘Fantasy’ Princess!
Visitors to the Titanic Museum Attraction will also be able to view thousands of holiday lights, Edwardian-period decorations, costumed merry-markers and a magical Gift Shoppe brimming with original, one-of-a-kind gifts.
“Every day, but especially during the holidays, we remember and honor the men, women and particularly the children who sailed on the Titanic. At this special time, our guests truly experience what it was like onboard the ship in 1912 and how it might have looked on a Christmas voyage 101 years ago,” says Joslyn.
