Today is the day of the annual Dolly homecoming parade in Pigeon Forge, and Santa’s float is being polished and primed even now! Hope you’ll have a chance to come down and wave at us in the parade – at 6 pm on the Parkway, starting at light 6 and heading north to light 3. We’re about halfway back in the parade this year, and Mrs. Claus as well as Uncle Sam will be riding along with us this year.
We’re also expecting an extra special guest on the float with us – Kaedyn Griffin, a student at Sevierville Primary School, was the winner of our drawing contest last November, and she’ll be riding with Santa today. We’re sure happy to have Kaedyn aboard!
Just remember that it is NOT weird to shout “Merry Christmas!” in May, particularly if you are shouting it out to Santa and his team of elves in the Dolly Parade!

P.S. We will also accept Feliz Navidad, Mele Kalikimaka, Joyeux Noel, Fröhliche Weihnachten, E ku odun, e ku iye’dun!, and any other language you would like to use to share your holiday spirit!
