Dollywood has been the main attraction here for many years and before her name got on it, it was Silver Dollar City. Dolly who lived in Sevierville, Tennesse came back and lent her name to this Entertainment Park.
When I lived in Sevierville back 10 yrs ago I worked for three seasons at Dollywood in their Old General Store, wearing costumes to befit the place. It was a lot of fun. You could pretty well tell them what dates you could work and whether it was 5, 6, or 3 days in aweek. Pretty fun meeting all kinds of people from all over the world. Then I retired completely from everything and went full time rving with my DH. That's enough about me.
I took a drive, as I do every once in awhile, mostly Fall and Winter, to the streets of Pigeon Forge. This time I was amazed at the following pictures I took. In one section of a block they put up a spooky castle as shown. As you are about a mile away, I saw this gorilla climbing a building. Let me tell you, it looked so real. It is for a building housing movie memorabilia, like a wax museum (remember the movie with Vincent Price? - scared me half to death.)
