PIGEON FORGE, Tenn - With amazing new entertainment, extended park hours, and a nightly fireworks show, Dollywood is the perfect place for families to celebrate the fun and excitement of summer.

From June 11- Aug. 7, Dollywood`s park hours are 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. daily, allowing guests more time to create memories and share experiences together. In addition to extended hours during this time, visitors can enjoy Dolly`s Nights of Many Colors, a spectacular synchronized fireworks show which paints a colorful canvas across the Smoky Mountain sky. Guests also can join in the excitement of Lite the Nite, a high-spirited dance party which occurs each evening prior to the fireworks extravaganza.

Dollywood goes to the dogs July 11- Aug. 7 with the high-flying antics of Chris Perondi`s Stunt Dog Experience. These talented animals will leave audiences begging for more. Trainers work with these performing pooches to create a high-energy show which features remarkable tricks and eye-popping special effects. All of the dogs in Perondi`s show are adopted from pounds and shelters nationwide. Perondi`s stunt dogs have been featured on The Tonight Show, Ellen and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Summer also means it`s story time again at The Little Engine Playhouse, as some of The Imagination Library`s best titles are brought to life. "Old Bear and His Cub" and "Betty Bunny Didn`t Do It" are featured as 25-minute musicals with special sing-along songs written by Dolly. Everyone`s favorite, "The Little Engine That Could", also comes to the stage with a delightful reminder of what can happen with a bit of determination and courage.

Festive food adds to the Dollywood experience during the summer with unique new items including macaroni & cheese with various toppings, pretzel dogs, banana split funnel cakes and frozen chocolate-dipped bananas.
