Dolly Homecoming Parade
One of the biggest reasons to come to the Smokies in early May is the Dolly Homecoming Parade on May 1st in downtown Pigeon Forge. From Stoplights #3 to #6, dozens and dozens of awesome floats will parade down the main parkway of the city, ending with Dolly herself as the Grand Marshal of the event. http://www.mypigeonforge.com/events/dolly-parade/
