Dollywood To Reopen Friday After Devastating Forest Fires Sweep The Great Smoky Mountains
After assessing the damage wrought by recent wildfires in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Dollywood has decided to focus its efforts on supporting the surrounding community. Dollywood has joined in supporting the needs of others affected by the wildfires as well as assisting other area businesses in supplying personal care items to the shelter at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge. They will also continue to feed and house firefighters and first responders.
“I have been watching the terrible fires in the Great Smoky Mountains and I am heartbroken. I am praying for all the families affected by the fire and the firefighters who are working so hard to keep everyone safe. It is a blessing that my Dollywood theme park, the DreamMore Resort, Dixie Stampede and so many businesses in Pigeon Forge have been spared,” Dolly Parton said.
Thanks to the hard work by community firefighters and first responders, Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort is open to guests. The Dollywood theme park will resume normal operation on Friday, December 2 at 2 p.m.
For those interested in helping victims of the wildfires, contact the American Red Cross (1-800-Red Cross) or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate ten dollars to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund.
