Moonshine Murder Mystery Dinner Show Pigeon Forge
January, after the Christmas Holidays, is a perfect time to travel to the Pigeon Forge TN area as the town is wide open for tourism, and hotels are cheaper. So if you do decide to do the smart thing and take a January Pidgeon Forge vacation, where should you go for entertainment. We'd recommend one of the easiest and best shows in the area is the Moonshine Murders Mystery & dinner show. Patterned after the Dukes of Hazards TV Show, you'll love the sense of humor, suspense, and great food in this two-hour show. Best of all, for the extroverts and the brave, the show also relies on audience participation, and the "guest stars of the show" often add a hilarious twist to the program. And this is not a show where the actors are stuck on stage. They mingle around the room, providing real, up-close excitement and suspense at your table. A three-course meal is served as part of the show, and the food is darn good. But the congenial actors and actresses, who afterward sign autographs and canoodle with the crowd, make this a great show to consider as you enjoy your January Vacation.
