PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Hospitality workers in Pigeon Forge celebrated the holidays and thanked workers for a year of hard work.

Tuesday night, The Pigeon Forge Hospitality Association held an annual Christmas party for front-line employees working in Sevier County. The party is held each year as a way to thank employees for their hard work at making visitors comfortable during their stay in the Great Smoky Mountains.

"They are the first people many times that our visitors see when they get here. So it is very important that the front line employees do feel appreciated and this is our way of showing them the appreciation for the good job that they do," said Teresa Karson with the Pigeon Forge Hospitality Association.

Karson says the evening wouldn't have been possible without the support of many area sponsors. Music Road Resort and Convention Center, Chefs Catering, Reinhard Foods, Buddy's Bar-B-Que, Smokey Mountain Sounds, Good Sounds Entertainment, S&D Coffee, ASI, Dollywood and the Pigeon Forge Hospitality Association all worked together to put on the free event for employees.
