No One Does Christmas like Dolly Parton! Year after year, guests come to Carr’s Cottages during the holidays not only for the comforts of home and southern hospitality, but for discount tickets to Dollywood’s annual Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival. This is only one of four annual festivals held at the theme park, but certainly one of the best!
Attending Dolly’s 2012 Smoky Mountain Christmas is a gift in itself! There’s traditional Christmas music, live entertainment, shopping, delicious meals, and rides all in one beautifully decorated wonderland. All ages will find delight around every corner and on every stage throughout the park.
Stories come to life during performances of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas and ‘O Holy Night, and music soothes the soul when Christmas with the Kingdom Heirs presents your favorite hymns and southern gospel songs. Appalachian Christmas celebrates with acoustics at the Back Porch Theatre to remind you of the simpler days of Christmas’ past, while Christmas in the Smokies presents the joy of the season with traditional favorites everyone can sing along with. And, Dollywood’s Christmas on Ice is an amazing show choreographed to sounds of the season and performed by the Ice Theater of New York cast.
In addition to the special shows, the entire park is illuminated with (literally) millions of Christmas lights from walking path to treetop, and from entrance to exit. Dolly’s Parade of Lights travels throughout the park daily, too, with brightly decorated Christmas floats. As if that isn’t enough, lights spring to life during the synchronized Carol of the Trees light show. It’s a beautiful symphony of lights and music at Rivertown Lake every evening!
From open to close, Dollywood packages all the best of Christmas music, lights, and entertainment right here in Pigeon Forge. Come vacation at Carr’s this holiday season and celebrate in a big, Great Smoky Mountains way!
