A warm orange glow shines across the park, inviting you to explore a world of not-so-spooky nighttime fun. Stroll through a forest of shimmering sunflowers, see a family of glowing frogs, and snap a memorable family photo in front of our towering Pumpkin Tree. A treat for all ages, Great Pumpkin LumiNights is the highlight of Harvest season at Dollywood!
A large crop of beautiful sunflowers have sprouted in Wildwood Grove. Make sure to take plenty of pictures.
Based on Dolly's love of music, this larger-than-life instrument plays Dolly's timeless song, Tennessee Mountain Home.
Created by a massive mountain of pumpkins, this glowing 40-foot tall pumpkin tree is the centerpiece of Great Pumpkin LumiNights fun.
These critters are happy to be on their lily pads and love the glow of an illuminated Timber Canyon.
Each evening, Dolly narrates the autumnal transformation of this hidden land and the meaning of the changing seasons.
