Pigeon Forge Rod Run 2016

The city of Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountain region in Eastern Tennessee was once again home to thousands of hot rods for the 2016 Fall Pigeon Forge Rod Run. This annual show drew record numbers of participants and spectators into the LeConte Event Center, which was packed with show cars and vendors. The show not only filled up the event center building but also a large area outside of the building with more show vehicles and vendors. The outside show cars had the opportunity to leave the grounds and take part in what is known as “Cruisin’ the Strip” during the day or at night.

During the three day show, Jim Mitchum, son of Robert Mitchum and star of Thunder Road, was signing autographs and taking time for photographs with fans. This year’s feature display vehicle was the 1932 Ford Tudor sedan named “Gold Rush” built by Big Oak Garage. Of course a big draw for the spectators was the chance to look at some of the top built vehicles in the country and shop with top name vendors. For registered participants it was the shot at $10,000 in cash given away between Friday and Saturday. During the show on Saturday door prizes winners were announced by Koto, the official DJ for the show. Then on Saturday afternoon there was the announcement of the highly sought after awards, Top 25 and the Ultimate 5 Awards. 

A big thanks to MCS Promotions for once again putting together three fun filled automotive days in scenic Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Thanks also to all of the LeConte Event Center staff for being so helpful during the show and for having such a great facility as the host site for this fun show.

The Spring Pigeon Forge Rod Run, which will feature Scottie D’s Dirty Dozen, will be held April 6-8, 2017 at the LeConte Event Center. For more information call 865-687-3976 or visit www.rodrun-pigeonforge.com or the official Pigeon Forge Rod Run Facebook page.
