ECO-AWARENESS FAIR BRINGS COCA-COLA® RECYCLING EDUCATION VEHICLE TO DOLLYWOOD'S SPLASH COUNTRY, DOLLYWOOD JULY 14, 15

   PIGEON FORGE, Tenn.—Dollywood’s Splash Country and Dollywood will host Live Positively:  An Eco-Awareness Fair featuring the Coca-Cola® Recycling Education Vehicle(REV)  on July 14 and 15, respectively, along with local organizations devoted to increasing environmental awareness and initiatives          

               Through interaction with the onsite staff, the goal is to show individuals how their personal efforts to recycle can have a greater impact in their own communities.  Live Positively:  An Eco-Awareness Fair is included with park admission. 

               The REV is a self-contained vehicle equipped with video screens, interactive displays, and games all designed to educate consumers about the benefits of recycling. Coca-Cola’s three REVs travel more than 120,000 miles a year, visiting more than 200 events and venues across North America.

               During park operating hours, booths will be hosted by the American Eagle Foundation, Great Smoky Mountains Association, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Friends of the Smokies, Sevier Solid Waste, Keep Sevier Beautiful and more.

               The onsite staff will help increase recycling awareness by engaging park guests in recycling trivia and games as well as educational videos. Guests are encouraged to stop by during regular park operating hours to learn how to make a difference in their homes and communities through efforts to recycle and reduce.

               The Dollywood parks’ efforts to reduce waste and energy use also include recycling corrugated cardboard and replacing incandescent light bulbs with more efficient compact fluorescent and LED lamps.     

               Dollywood is a 150-acre family adventure park, and Dollywood’s Splash Country is a 35-acre water adventure park, both located in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.  Open nine months a year, Dollywood, the 2010 Applause Award winner, offers more than 40 rides and attractions; award-winning live entertainment featuring country, bluegrass, gospel and mountain music; and a dozen crafters authentic to the East Tennessee region.  Named America’s Must-See Waterpark in 2009, Dollywood’s Splash Country operates Memorial Day to Labor Day.  For more information, call 1-800-DOLLYWOOD or visit dollywood.com.  Operating days and hours vary.
