Weather leads to Valentine's weekend cancellations

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Hotels in Pigeon Forge report several cancellations this week after a forecast of snow.

Karl Thomas, Managing Partner at Inn on the River, says he'd have a full house on Valentine's Weekend, but he had several call and cancel on Monday.

"Normally by this time we're almost full for Valentines but the weather has people changing their mind. We've had a few cancellations today," said Thomas. "Everything's going to be open, I don't know anything that's going to be closed. I expect us to fill up Fri and Saturday but I don't think it'll happen until late until they see the weathers cleared."

Many businesses have developed sales specials for Valentine's weekend. Ripley's Believe it or Not has a 2 for $20 special going on.

"Basically we have all of the weird oddities that Ripley collected on his travels around the world," said Lee Douglas, Ripley's Believe it or Not. "Yeah get away and celebrate valentine's with us you'll share your love and we'll share with you saving money."

Thomas says he believe the weekend will pick back up once the weather clears. He expects a lot of walk-in business.
