Today was the last day of the season at Dollywood. The theme park is now closed until March.
During the park’s Smoky Mountain Christmas festival, they featured characters from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. In the Reindeer Games area, I saw an employee dressed as an elf who was trying to drum up business at the ring-toss. I snapped a photo as the red ring was in the air.
I stopped outside the inflatable snow globe to get a look at the Sam the Snowman statue. I once spoke with Burl Ives by phone when I was a young, aggressive radio producer. Click below to hear my favorite part of the conversation.
