It's one of the annual highlights of springtime in Pigeon Forge-the annual Dolly Parade, featuring Dolly Parton herself as the parades grand marshal. This year's event takes place this Friday, May 10 at 6 p.m. As many as 50,000 spectators are expected to line the Pigeon Forge Parkway to get a glimpse of everyone's favorite hometown girl.
The parade gets underway on River Road near traffic light #7 and will travel north along the Parkway and ending at Belz Factory Outlet World near traffic light #3. The free event will feature colorful floats, marching bands, twirlers, entertainers and local celebrities, including Ms. Parton herself.
With so many guests in town, you may want to plan your viewing or your Pigeon Forge travels accordingly. As a matter of fact, the parade begins near the turnoff to our Pigeon Forge ziplines, which are located just two miles off the Parkway. So if you plan on visiting us, it's probably best to get your zipline fun in that morning or in the early afternoon. After that, the Parkway starts to get very congested with folks staking out a spot to view the parade.
