PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018) – Experience the spirit of Christmas at Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction this holiday season. Debuting Oct. 31 and running through January 5, 2019, families can create new traditions at “The Most Fun Place to Eat in the Smokies.” With a full-scale living Nativity, four-course feast, and an arena full of the merriest sights and sounds, every guest will leave jollier than Old Saint Nick.
“Christmas is a very special time of year at Dolly Parton’s Stampede,” said David Swangel, General Manager of Dolly Parton’s Stampede in Pigeon Forge. “While our thrilling high-spirited adventure provides fun for our guests, we also celebrate the meaning of Christmas thanks to a full-scale, living Nativity. Families always take the time to let us know this show has become a treasured part of their yearly traditions.”
To celebrate the reason for this holiday season, guests will watch a special re-enactment of Jesus’ birth with Mary, Joseph, three wise men, and a living Nativity with camels, donkeys, and sheep. This touching scene reflects on the importance of Christmas.
Taking a whimsical turn, The Sugar Plum Fairy brings a number of toys to life for a magical celebration in “Toys Come to Life.” Including stunning aerial displays set to the unforgettable music of The Nutcracker, families can watch in awe as their childhood fantasies come to life.
Stampede’s 32 magnificent horses, not to be confused Santa’s reindeer, will race one another in exciting competitions as audience members cheer their respective sides of the North Pole and South Pole to victory. And after the arena is transformed into a winter wonderland of glistening snow, Old Saint Nick arrives by sleigh to complete the festivities.
The entire holiday experience is enhanced by the state-of-the-art, LED wall in the show’s 35,000-square-foot arena, which seamlessly complements the exciting action with stunning holiday scenery. Guests will feel as if they have been instantly transported deep in to the natural beauty of Christmas from the foothills surrounding the Great Smoky Mountains and to the clear skies above Bethlehem on the night of Jesus’ birth.
Adding to the lineup, Christmas dinner includes Stampede’s signature four-course feast consisting of Stampede’s original creamy vegetable soup, homemade buttery biscuit, a whole rotisserie chicken, hickory-smoked barbequed pork loin, buttery corn on the cob, herb-basted potato, Stampede’s own specialty dessert and unlimited tea, coffee or Coca-Cola products. Vegetarian and gluten-free meals are available upon request.
Guests are invited to start their fun-filled evening in the Saloon with side-splitting holiday comedy and Christmas classics with a twist by Mountain Ruckus, Stampede’s house band. The band performs one hour prior to show time. Show times and reservations are available by calling 1-800-356-1676 or visiting www.dpstampede.com.
