The city of Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountain region of Eastern Tennessee was once again home to thousands upon 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 that was packed with show cars and vendors. The show not only filled up the event center 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.
