Holiday Homecoming Celebration at Norris Dam State Park add to itinerary

Join us on December 8th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm for a walk through time and discover traditions of the 1930s. The rustic cabins are transformed into a winter village of living history. Cabins are decorated in historical, natural and cultural themes, as well as honoring the nation’s veterans. It’s an evening full of historical interpretation, holiday treats, old time caroling, and of course St. Nick to tell your Christmas wishes. Festivities take place on the historic East Side.
