PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. — Here's a sample of what to expect as you head to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge this summer.
The Gem Tones perform music from the 1950s and 1960s without instrumental accompaniment.
The a cappella group entertains guests in the park and at Red's Drive-In.
Their energy is contagious.
The Smoky Mountain String Band plays bluegrass with a big grin.
Enjoy the band's picking and singing as you stroll by or sit down.
Near the chapel, you'll find "Found Treasures."
In front of the store is the Pick-a-Pearl tank with farmed oysters featuring a pearl guarantee.
Before she opens an oyster for a customer, Jessica Davis likes to say '1,2,3 be pretty for me.' Then she reveals either one or two pearls.
Take your pearl home in a small box or have it set into a necklace or ring.
Dolly Parton was there for the opening and held a parade to celebrate the event!
