March 29th 2017 – 5pm to 9pm
**More Info Coming Soon**
Day 1 “kicks-off” of Ponies in the Smokies and we welcome our early bird arrivals with registration open at the Sevierville Convention Center from 9am to 3pm located at the front main entrance “Rotunda”. If you’ve pre-registered for either the Shine Run and/or Car Show we will check you in and hand you your PITS goodie bag. Folks can also register on site in minutes and grab a goodie bag as well!
The Shine Run stops will be open from 9am to 5pm on Wednesday. Upon arrival at each stop, let one of the employees know you are with the PITS Shine Run. They will then present you with a deck of playing cards from which you will make a blind draw. The employee will document the card you drew on your official Shine Run scorecard and that’s it. However, we highly encourage you to take in all that each stop has to offer. For instance, at Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum the gift shop counter to draw your card is just a few feet away from the entrance to the country’s largest collection of muscle cars and memorabilia that is open to the public! We’re talking almost 100 cars worth over $8 million dollars! Admission is $11 for adults and $5 for children 8-12(under 8 is free). Why would you not take 30-40mins to walk this line-up? The PITS Staff did and we promise it will not disappoint!
The Kick-off Party will be at The Hard Rock Café in Pigeon Forge from 5-9pm. We will have reserved and monitored parking for PITS participants while you enjoy dinner inside the Hard Rock. Hot Rods & Happy Hour will providing parking lot tunes while enjoying the laid back cruise-in atmosphere. Also on site are the Smoky Mountain Opry, the Wonders of Flight, WonderWorks of Pigeon Forge and the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show!
