Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., adds all-new stunts in its second season

Following a successful first season for Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Pigeon Forge, the show's producers wanted to give the fans something new. That was done with a few new additions to the animal lineup and more friendly competition.

Added to the horses and bulls guests saw during the first season at Dolly’s dinner attraction, chickens and pigs were worked into the second season. Audience members were called on to chase chickens in a race to see if the North or South would claim a victory. The thoroughbred pigs raced the stadium to bring home another win for their side.

These animal antics were not the only differences between the first and second season. The producers wanted there to be more action for the audience. A publicist for Dixie Stampede was quoted as saying,

“We want to get onto this rivalry between the North and South.”
