It’s October already, and the carefree days of summer have slipped away once more. This may be our last chance for a while to sit out on the deck and enjoy a quiet coffee moment. Here in Gatlinburg, on the edge of the Smoky Mountains, October is the busiest month of all.
The leaves begin to turn color, and visitors head to the Smokies to enjoy the autumn roads and trails. Life speeds up as we work seven days a week in our Gallery on Glades Road and downtown at the Craftsmen’s Fair. But it’s a happy time, something like getting the harvest in before winter.
The Craftsmen’s Fair will begin this Thursday and run through Sunday October 23rd. The fair is at the Gatlinburg Convention Center, at stoplight number 8 on the Parkway. You can find my booth at the bottom of the escalator as you enter the main exhibit hall. You can see my complete display of Smoky Mountains photography at both locations.
