PIGEON FORGE, Tenn.—At Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas presented by Humana (Nov. 5- Dec. 30), the most wonderful time of the year now glistens even more with the premiere of the spectacular new show Dollywood’s Christmas on Ice!
“My new Dollywood’s Christmas on Ice show is filled with some of my very favorite Christmas songs, beautiful costumes and incredibly talented ice skaters,” Dolly Parton said. “It’s the first ice rink we’ve ever created at Dollywood, and I just can’t wait for folks to see all the unbelievable twists and spins, along with, of course, the entire park that’s filled with all of the many wonderful sights and sounds of Christmas!
Featuring a dazzling display of four million colorful lights, Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas recently won its fourth Golden Ticket Award for Best Christmas Event.
