New $2.5 Million Parade Added to Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas

PIGEON FORGE, Tennessee — Dolly Parton has announced the addition of a new $2.5 million parade to Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas.

Named the Parade of Many Colors, the parade will celebrate the fun, faith, family and harmony of the holidays with floats, interactive characters and a few surprises.

Dollywood has also remastered its Christmas in the Smokies show and returned it to its traditional home at D.P.’s Celebrity Theater. It will also debut “It’s a Wonderful Life,” based on the timeless holiday movie.

The Parade of Many Colors is part of the Dollywood Company’s $300 million investment strategy announced in 2013. The company also recently announced the addition of TailSpin Racer to Dollywood’s Splash Country for 2017.
