Christmas is just weeks away, but at Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, they've already gotten an early jump on the holiday season. In fact, their annual Smoky Mountain Christmas celebration has been in full swing for weeks now, offering two months' worth of entertainment, holiday lights, seasonal foods and more. The festival runs now through January 3, 2015.
“I'm so glad we were able to add Rudolph and his friends to our Smoky Mountain Christmas,” said Parton. “With all of the beautiful lights and decorations, it truly is the most special time of year at my Dollywood.”
New for 2014 is Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, a live experience that captures the magic of the beloved Christmas television special. Guests can meet Rudolph and his friends, including Clarice, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster and Yukon Cornelius. It all takes place in Rudolph's Holly Jolly Junction. After meeting these beloved characters, families can head to Clarice's kitchen to decorate custom Christmas cookies, take part in some reindeer games and have their picture taken in a giant snow globe featuring Sam the Snowman.
Returning to Smoky Mountain Christmas this year is Dollywood's A Christmas Carol, a live production that uses holographic technology to bring Dolly Parton and the Ghost of Christmas Past to the stage.
Other returning sows include Christmas in the Smokies, An Appalachian Christmas, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, O' Holy Night, Christmas with The Kingdom Heirs and Carol of the Trees. Guests can also experience the nightly Parade of Lights and Santa's Workshop, where the smallest guests can share their wish lists with Santa himself.
And if you're at Dollywood this month, you're just a few miles away from our Smoky Mountain zip line course. We hope you find time to work us into your holiday fun in the Smokies this season!
