It appears the downtown Ribfest & Wings this evening has been canceled (from the web cam views).

I didn't know it was today, but it looks like it's been raining in Gatlinburg.

Hail storms came through her a couple of times today...baseball sized hail near Gatlinburg Falls Resort area...busted windshields and damaged cars. I'm in Pigeon Forge and got Dime sized hail, luckily no damage to my car.

Been storming on and off all day, since about 6:00am...just now finally clearing up

Ok, I am not nuts. I saw the tents earlier on the webcam. Hubby got home and looked and none were there. I guess they routed traffic down river road. can't wait til next week!

We are staying in Gatlinburg and both of our cars were damaged by the hail :( Last year at this very same time we were in Bristol,Va. on our way to Gatlinburg and a really bad storm came through - both cars were damaged by hail then as well. On the bright side, no glass was broken! Drove through town around 6:00pm and the tents were up, but by 7:30pm they were all down. Haven't heard of a new date set for the Ribfest. We ended up going to our favorite restaurant, the Greenbrier, and had a wonderful dinner. Their shrimp cocktail is the best and we are from Florida!!

This was posted on the aquarium's facebook page yesterday:

Ok all! Tomorrow from 11 AM until its gone. . .

Free BBQ on the plaza at the Aquarium!

Ribfest may be cancelled tonight due to the weather but we are turning lemons into lemonade! Donations accepted with all proceeds going to Pi Beta Phi Elementary School and Gatlinburg-Pittman High School! We cooked over 1500 pounds of BBQ for the cancelled event, lets eat up for Education.. .Unlike in Politics, this time too much pork is a good thing. . .
