You're Invited to the Salamander Ball!

What?  You've never dressed as your favorite animal or flower when you visited the Smokies?  This is your chance! The Great Smokies Salamander Ball puts a twist on the masquerade ball, with festive fun for the whole family.  It's only fitting, near the national park that boasts the most diverse salamander population on the planet.
