Gatlinburg has candy shops and gift shops galore. I also filmed Ripley's Believe It Or Not and a late October haunted house. Gatlinburg is a visitors playground that empties into the Northern entrance of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
I took my movie camera with me on this night. Last night a spooky creature at the local downtown haunted house scared me silly when his eyes followed where ever I walked. He never blinked an eye. However the creatures brother was here tonight. As I filmed him he proved to be much more civil.
Gatlinburg had its yearly Halloween the night before. There were many good costumes worth watching. the mood of the town was a happy one. Of course, who won't be happier living next to one of the greatest National Parks in the world?
I keep my movie camera on as I strolled through the squares of endless little shopping stores. As the night grew late, I found a nice chocolate fudge store. The fudge was made here and I had a large selection to choose from. Tonight it will be black walnut fudge. Now the walk back to the hotel will be twice as fun.
