Brand New Parade to Debut at 2016's Dollywood's Smoky Mountain Christmas

Already known as one of the most spectacular Christmas events in the country, Dollywood's Smoky Mountain Christmas has announced a brand new parade for the upcoming season.  Named Parade of Many Colors, the $2.5 million production will make the 2016 edition of Smoky Mountain Christmas the "best and brightest in the park's history."

The parade has been dreamed up by Dolly herself, and is a part of the previously announced $300 million investment in the Dollywood Resort.  Parade of Many Colors "celebrates the fun, faith, family and harmony of the holidays" using "vibrant floats, interactive characters and a few other surprises help spread cheer throughout Dollywood this holiday season."  Just in time for the parade to open to guests, Dolly will be featured in her new NBC holiday movie, "Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love."

“The joy I feel during the Christmas season makes my heart sing because of the love and sweet Christmas memories I have of family and friends from when I was a child,” says Parton. “Christmas is the time of year when traditions, faith and family come together to create experiences we all remember forever. That is why my new movie and this parade are so important for me. I truly believe The Parade of Many Colors will inspire some of those same lifelong memories for the families who see it.”

Dollywood's Smoky Mountain Christmas features a stunning collection of over 4 million lights, along with tons of special activities, food, shopping and live entertainment.  This year the popular show "Christmas in the Smokies" has been remastered and moved back to the D.P.'s Celebrity Theater location.  The park will also premier a new show, based on the holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life."
