Baseball season is an exciting time in the Great Smoky Mountains! The Smokies stadium in Sevierville is the perfect arena for competitive ballgames, audience-interaction contests, fireworks, concerts, and more! There's great restaurants close by, and delicious snacks inside. The stadium even has its own restaurant called the Double Play Cafe! After the excitement of the game, you'll love shopping Bass Pro Shops located right across the street!
Everybody loves a parade! Especially when the queen of the Great Smoky Mountains, Dolly Parton is Grand Marshall!
The parade is an excellent time to see Dolly Parton in person! Thousands line the streets of Pigeon Forge every year to see this awesome fanfare! It also features local beauty queens, dignitaries, local bands, floats, area attractions, and more!! The Dolly Parton Homecoming Parade is an annual event!
