Theme: A trip to Pigeon Forge is not complete without a visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the cities of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville have grown, so has our impact and relationship to the environment. For these reasons, our theme this year is… Nature!
This can be as broad or specific as you like. Maybe it’s a picture of a black bear that is native to this area, or a humpback whale in the middle of the ocean. It could be a representation of nature’s power, the circle of life, or the relationship of humans to the environment. Whether it’s a worm in the dirt or a pterodactyl in the clouds, the sky is the limit, so head outside and start brainstorming!
