I am going to be there next (Thanksgiving) week, How is busking there? Any good pitches, any hassles with the local cops?

Thanks.

It may have changed but Gatlinburg was a great town, a major party town at that. I think with the number of visitors it gets (not sure about Thanksgiving) it would be a fun place to work. The cops tolerate a lot there, shouldn't be a problem if you are polite.

The weather is looking pretty bad for outdoor activity in the Smoky Mts this week. We're not all that far from there and the rain is coming down in sheets right now. Maybe it will move it out in time for the snow that's supposed to be coming. I would suggest busking there in the spring or summer if you get a chance. Like Steve V says, its a great place.

Yep, Tabman, you weren't kidding. We got there on the 21st and it was so-so, didn't do any busking just scouted the area. After that it was COLD and rainy. The road from Gatlinburg to Cherokee over the mountains was closed for 2 days dur to ice at higher elevations. Fun trip but didn't do any busking. Maybe in the summer.

Cherokee would be a good place to go in the spring too.

Have a good winter!!!

The Smokies are mostly for families. Therefore, school being in or out is significant. Fall is beautiful but the audience is not there.

Sorry to disagree, but I go there every October, just for a family vacation, and the place is packed with folks. In addition to the Fall colors attracting many people, there is a huge craft festival. In this part of Alabama, the school's are on Fall break that same week. Lots of families with kids from this area go to the mountains.

Ya, haha. A lot of people seem to think like that there! I personally think you are one of the most helpful people there. I don't go there anymore tho.

No, it was cold with 8" of snow in the mountains. So I didn't get a chance. One lady said that the cops will run you in for busking but I may try it this summer there.
