Dolly Parton has unveiled plans for a new $2.5 million Parade of Many Colors spectacular, which will be added to Dollywood’s family-friendly Smoky Mountain Christmas holiday festival.
Named The Parade of Many Colors, the new $2.5 million addition will complement Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas offerings, which include four million festive lights, the remastered Christmas in the Smokies show, the all-new It’s a Wonderful Life show, and the traditional holiday atmosphere.
Like her new NBC holiday movie, Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, Parton’s new parade celebrates the holidays. Vibrant floats, interactive characters and a few other surprises help spread cheer throughout Dollywood this holiday season.
“The joy I feel during the Christmas season makes my heart sing because of the love and sweet Christmas memories I have of family and friends from when I was a child,” Parton said with a smile. “Christmas is the time of year when traditions, faith and family come together to create experiences we all remember forever. That is why my new movie and this parade are so important for me. I truly believe The Parade of Many Colors will inspire some of those same lifelong memories for the families who see it.”
The Parade of Many Colors represents another significant investment made by The Dollywood Company as part of the $300 million investment strategy announced in 2013. The company also recently announced the addition of TailSpin Racer to Dollywood’s Splash Country for 2017.
Dollywood has added two days to its calendar, December 6 and 13, to provide guests more time to experience the eight-time winner for Best Christmas Event. The Christmas in the Smokies production has been remastered for 2016 and returns to its traditional home at D.P.’s Celebrity Theater, with a cast of singers and dancers performing hometown holiday favorites while accompanied by a band of live musicians.
Dollywood’s entertainment team brings a Christmas classic to life with the debut of It’s a Wonderful Life. Based on the timeless holiday story of love and generosity, small town businessman George Bailey discovers the true value of life, family and friends with a little help from his guardian angel, Clarence.
