dolly_parton Almost any day of the year you can find something great to do at Dollywood. I know this because I live less than a 1-1/2 hour drive from the place. And it’s great. The amusements and water parks in the summer – the shows – the crafts and concerts – and of course the Christmas lights!

But I’m really getting off track here. What I wanted to tell you is that I’m not the only one who thinks Dollywood is a pretty great place to visit. Yesterday, Dollywood won the prestigious Applause Award, which every other year recognizes one facility in the world for overall excellence, including outstanding management, operations, and creative accomplishments. {Source}

Dolly IAAPA I was at Dollywood in May, when she had her 25th Anniversary Homecoming Parade. She has a parade every year at the opening of the new season, or sometimes a little later. The season opens in April, this year the parade was in May – the parade was great. It always is. I don’t really think Dolly could do anything that wasn’t great.

And soon, the entire park will be lit for Christmas. Not just the park, the entire town of Sevierville, Tenn. It’s definitely something to see.

A lot of people put a lot of hours and hard work into making Dollywood what it is – no matter when you visit. I did find a few YouTube videos I want to share with you. Here is one that shows just a glimpse of the great holiday lights.You really need to see them at the park to get the full affect.

And I jsut have to do this. I mean – what’s Dollywood without a roller coaster or two … or three… or four.

I need to get my day started. I hope you all have a good Wednesday.I’m going to try to get all my mail answered tonight, so those of you who are expecting mail form me – this will be the time to check your mailbox!

More later!
