Protest over shutdown planned in the Smoky Mountains

Posted: Updated:

The closure of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has sparked a call for a protest.
A local Appalachian artist says he's organizing a protest this Saturday at the National Park entrance sign on Newfound Gap Road.
He says its aim is to express discontent about the closure and raise awareness about everyone affected by it.
October is one of the busiest times of the year for the park. Officials say the Smokies average over one million visitors within the month.
