There are certain things at Dollywood that, I feel, sets the park apart in the theme park world. The entertainment, ambiance and food are near the top of that long list, but the most distinguishing factor is the park’s festivals. Dollywood hosts festivals complete with their own unique offerings and features that reflect the changes in the seasons. I’m not alone in my belief that these festivals are industry-leading experiences for our guests, after all, the Great Pumpkin LumiNights event during our annual Harvest Festival presented by Humana is the reigning champion for the USA Today’s 10Best Reader’s Choice for Best Theme Park Halloween Event.
Once again, the USA Today polls are open and it is time for Dollywood and Great Pumpkin LumiNights to defend its title. Guests who have visited during the Harvest Festival overlay and experienced the seasonal wonder of Great Pumpkin LumiNights know exactly why the event is worthy of such accolades. The event will operate from Sept. 24 – Oct. 30 this year, and is a can’t-miss experience for theme park lovers everywhere.
