Dollywood’s Great American Summer

Dollywood Great American SummerDollywood’s first ever Great American Summer is set to kick off June 22nd and is rumored to be one of the most fun events that the Pigeon Forge theme park has ever hosted.

For starters, Dollywood is planning on extending their hours of operation- 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. starting Saturday June 22nd and lasting through Sunday August 4th.

Patriotism is a big part of this summer celebration. This is certainly evident in the new “Salute to America”. As part of this new feature each day will start with a live rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and the raising of the American flag. The evenings will consist of Dolly’s Nights of Many Colors, an extravagant fireworks display.

The new Summer Nights experience at the park is sure to be a fun experience for guests who want to fully experience the extended hours of operation. Taking flight on rides like the Wild Eagle at night time would be a thrill!

New shows are also part of the Great American Summer. The Little Engine Playhouse shows and Gazillion Bubbles show will be hits with kids. Also a new musical themed Great American Country show (May 10 through October 26) will be taking place.

If you’re taking a summer vacation to Pigeon Forge then you should plan on heading over to Dollywood at least once to experience this exciting new event!
