The Annual Dolly Homecoming Parade 2015 kicks off Pigeon Forge Spring fest. Dolly Parton herself as grand marshal will be leading the celebration at 6:00 pm.
The Dolly Parade will begin on River Road near traffic light #7 and will
travel north along the Parkway ending at the Belz Factory Outlet
World at traffic light #3. All visitors who come to the parade will get a real taste of
the entertainment that can be found all year in Pigeon Forge. Every year
for the last 25 years Dolly has been holding her annual Homecoming Parade.
This event puts Spring fest
into full swing. The parade usually draws Dolly lovers and spectators
from all over the world. It is fun and it is free, and you get to see
Dolly herself. It is so much fun to see what parade float and outfit she
will come up with next.
In 1986, Dolly Parton joined the Hershend brothers in owning Silver
Dollar City. She also shared her name with the theme park and from the
opening day in 1986 forward, it became known as the now famous Dollywood.
Now Tennessee’s most-visited tourist attraction, Dollywood
ranks in the top fifty most attended theme parks in the world and has
now doubled in size. Covering over 100 acres, with several new areas and
many more attractions, this theme park draws over two million visitors
per year to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee! Though Dollywood has
expanded and changed ownership, it continues to offer family values and
several old-fashioned time periods. Its friendly workers strive to help
visitors create “Memories Worth Repeating”.
Make your plans now to attend this special event and you will find there is something for everyone in our beautiful Smoky Mountain vacation destination!
We hope to see you soon!
