Guests can expect a 300-foot tunnel of lights across the SkyBridge, a 30-foot tall rainbow tree of lights with a pot of gold beneath it, shining shamrocks hanging from the bridge and more

“The reception to these holiday light displays have been incredible,” SkyLift Park manager Randy Watson said. “We’ve been quite lucky to have had so many come out and celebrate the holidays with us these past few months, so we’re excited to pay a bit of that luck forward and join the city of Gatlinburg in the spirit of its new St. Patrick’s Day Celebration.”

The event runs through March 31.
