A true fantasy for children, parents, grandparents and many others is to enjoy brunch with the Easter Bunny! This dream is possible on March 30, 2013, and the place for this adventure to happen is at The Old Mill Square in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, located in the mysterious and wondrous Smokey Mountains.
It is interesting to note that this location has tremendous historical cognizance. At the beginning of the 19th Century, a water-powered grain-mill, which was operating on the banks of the Little Pigeon River, was the center of all activities for the pioneers of Pigeon Forge. This mill not only produced power for the region, but it also provided grains for all of the local residents.
Even today, the town is known for its huge water wheel. This is the engine that propels the mighty and flowing waters of little Pigeon River. Interestingly, the workings that are inside the structure of the water wheel work, diligently, to turn the grain elevators and to move massive stones. These stones convert grains into delectable and delicious products such as corn breads, biscuits, muffins and pancakes. Grits and hushpuppies are also produced as well as many other food products.
This historical background is just part of the magic of Old Mill Square in Tennessee. It is the spirit of this same kind of Smokey Mountain joy that invites visitors to have brunch with the Easter Bunny! This location, Old Mill Square, is on the National Register of Historic places. It is a perfect place to photograph the beauty of the Smokey Mountains, and it is also a wonderful place to visit, especially when the Easter Bunny is in Pigeon Forge.
After dining with the Easter Bunny at Old Mill Square, it might be fun to explore the area’s heritage. Pottery-making is one of the main crafts, but it is also possible to find home-made candies and other wonderful treats, which are always good in the Easter season.
