Dollywood’s KidFest 2011

Subscribe to A Day In the SmokiesWe’re gearing up for Dollywood’s KidFest, “the south’s largest children’s festival!” Dollywood is family-friendly all the time, but they make a special point to bring kid-geared excitement to the forefront during this festival scheduled at just the right time, when the kids are out of school!

Cloudy With A Chance of MeatballsCloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 4D Experience
I am so incredibly excited about this (as mentioned in a previous post)! This movie is by far the most creative movie I have ever seen. It is an extremely well done movie version of a classic children’s story. Forget the kids, you will love this! Actually, don’t forget the kids, they will love it too! I can only imagine how great it will be in 4D. Are we there yet?

The JunkbeatsThe Junkbeats
If your kids have ever collected trash cans, buckets, pots and pans, and other household items to create a drum set, they are sure to be enthralled by this group. It’s always fun to see those who have brought creative dreams to reality.  Enjoy their unique rhythms from various points in the park!

Gazillion Bubble ShowThe Gazillion Bubble Show
Kids love bubbles, right? What about a humongous bubble wall, or a person encased in a bubble? Add lasers and lighting effects, and you have a show that will blow your mind! If being featured on ““The Oprah Winfrey Show”, “The David Letterman Show”, “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly”, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, “Fox & Friends”, “The View”, “CBS Sunday Morning”, “The Today Show”, FOX, NBC, ABC, CW11 as well as television stations all around the world” (deep breath) isn’t enough.. check out the enthusiastic reviews from parents just like you. 

Roving CharactersRoving Characters
When cartoon characters come to life, kids are sure to be enthralled! During KidFest, Dollywood will host some of our own Smoky Mountain themed characters to delight your little ones! Legendary outdoorsman Cas and his trusty bluetick hound Walker, Miss Penny and Patches the Scarecrow, and Trapper and Baxter Bear will all be roaming around the park, ready to take pictures and shake hands with anyone they meet! Or catch all these characters, in addition to Strawberry Shortcake, Madeline, and Corduroy Bear at a Character Breakfast, every morning from 8:30 am to 10:45 am at Aunt Granny’s. First come first served!

Penguin PlayersThe Penguin Players
Sit down to an enthusiastic performance of 3 classic children’s books, presented by the Penguin Players. Kids will love to see stories like The Little Engine That Could, Ladybug Girl and The Bug Squad, and Otis unfold magically before their eyes.

Don’t forget that Dollywood is geared for family fun all year long, with roller coasters for the big kids, traditional fair rides and games for all ages, and several attractions specifically for the little bitties!
