Bays Mountain Park and the Kingsport Times News are teaming up this year to celebrate the park’s 50th anniversary with a series of contests highlighting the majesty of the mountain.

To kick things off, in April and May we invited community members to share their favorite photos from the park in one of six categories: All Seasons; Facilities; Wildflowers; Scenic; Nature/Wildlife; and Other.

The six winners featured here were chosen by a panel of judges.

Each photographer will receive a one-year family membership to Bays Mountain Park and 50th anniversary swag.

Your next chance to win happens this month when “Where’s Billy?” returns to the pages of the Times News. The contest will continue through July 3.
