I love the B&W. It's a nice way to mix it up. They're great shots too.

I don't think they post any kind of schedule. My impression is that she's not there all that much (anymore). Since Dollywood doesn't have a proper new attraction opening this year, your best bet might be to aim at (or around) this: Dolly Parade.

Just my impressions from living here for the last few years. I don't claim to be an expert. But I've never seen her at Dollywood, just going randomly (but with some frequency).

Great photos. I love how no matter what a black and white photo is taken of, it makes it look so much more artsy. Great job!

Black-and-white seems appropriate for Dollywood--adds to the "old timey" atmosphere.

Chalk me up as another who likes the B&W look. Nice work.

Yes and no. Yes you usually find out when she is going to be there but you will never really find out where she will be when she is there.

She will be in the Dolly Parade on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge as mentioned above at 6 p.m. on Friday May 8.

Then Dolly will then be at the park May 9th. On May 9th they have only announced one appearance yet and it is the premiere of Sha-Kon-O-Hey! at 7 p.m. Tickets and information are available on the Friends of the Smokies site here. has announced that she will then again be at the park June 12 for the opening of KidsFest.

So Dolly is actually at the park several times a year each year. If you visit under upcoming appearances you can find out in advance, then most of the time Dollywood's website usually announces them about 5-7 days in advance.

I think it's cool that you have shown the park in a Black and White setting. As I walk through it, my imagination allows me to gradually see it that way as well. Well, that and my photo-grey perscription glasses. But using my imagination, it slowly turns to black and white as if by magic.

But I digress! I love this park, and your pictures do it much justice. =)

B & W

Thanks for posting pics in B & W. I LOVE B & W pics. They are my favorite type of pictures, drawings, paintings and tattoos! I also really like sepiatone pics too. Color is good but not as much as B & W. The color pics you did throw in there were great juxtaposed to the B & W ones!
