Drop pumpkins 140 feet from Gatlinburg SkyBridge Friday


GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WATE) – After inclement weather forced organizers to reschedule, The Gatlinburg Skylift Park is celebrating Halloween Friday by hosting its first annual Gatlinburg SkyBridge Pumpkin Toss.

Kicking off at 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, guests are invited to bring their pumpkins or they can take one of the 200+ available pumpkins and toss them off the SkyBridge.

At 6:30 p.m., there will be a grand finale pumpkin toss where over a hundred people will line up on the bridge and toss pumpkins all at the same time.

Registration is $5 dollars and all proceeds go to the Sevier County Food Ministry. If you wear your Halloween costume, you will get $2 off admission to the Skylift Park.

The SkyBridge hangs 140 feet above the ground at its highest point.
