GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Ripley's attractions in Tennessee are holding a canned food drive to support the Sevier County Food Ministry.

For just $5 you can get into any Ripley's attraction, including the Aquarium, Haunted Adventure and Mini Golf, all you have to do is bring 5 cans of food.

Again this year, the Ripley's attractions are helping raise food for the Sevier County Food Ministry, in advance of the Thanksgiving and Christmas distributions. Ripley's says they've had a huge success at all 8 area attractions.

"We go out right before Thanksgiving and help them hand out the food because they'res thousands of families that they serve each year, each season," said Chuck Winstead with Ripley's.

The food drive runs through Novemeber 8th at all Tennessee Ripley's locations.
