There’s nothing like a good family feud to make you hungry and laugh out loud. If you’re up for some good-natured bickering and battling, make plans to attend the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This production in the Smoky Mountains features singing, dancing, fiddle playing, banjo strummin’ and campy, slapstick comedy. The sheriff’s britches even got lit on fire, which prompted another performer to toast a marshmallow. Throughout the performance, guys show off with macho displays of strength and subject themselves to harrowing stunts, all in an effort to impress some ladies and try to settle the differences between the families with some good ol’ mountain-style antics.
Before the show started some older teenagers sitting at other tables could be seen with their arms crossed kind of biting their lips. Once the entertainment began, they seemed to let out some genuine laughs.
