PIGEON FORGE, TN (WSPA) – After assessing the damage done by the wildfires in the Great Smoky Mountains, the Dollywood theme park plans to resume normal operation on Friday at 2:00 p.m.
Thanks to the hard work by community firefighters and first responders, Dollywood says the DreamMore Resort is open to guests.
Dollywood hosts have joined in supporting the needs of their fellow hosts affected, as well as assisting other area businesses in supplying personal care items to the shelter at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge.
They are also feeding and housing firefighters and first responders.
“I have been watching the terrible fires in the Great Smoky Mountains and I am heartbroken. I am praying for all the families affected by the fire and the firefighters who are working so hard to keep everyone safe. It is a blessing that my Dollywood theme park, the DreamMore Resort, Dixie Stampede and so many businesses in Pigeon Forge have been spared,” Dolly Parton said.
For those interested in helping victims of the wildfires, you can contact the American Red Cross at 1-800-Red Cross, or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund.
