Dolly participates in a traditional ceremony to bless the site of Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort
In keeping with Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort's close ties to the land in the Smoky Mountains, Dolly welcomed Dollywood theme park’s Chaplain Joey Buck and the Beloved Man of the Cherokee Nation Elder Jerry Wolfe to a special ceremony on May 2, 2014. Buck presided over a blessing of the resort followed by a traditional Native American smudging by Wolfe.
Dollywood's DreamMore Resort will celebrate the iconic Southern gathering spot, beckoning to a time when families and friends sipped iced tea, enjoyed homemade ice cream and socialized. Centered on the rich traditions of storytelling, family and togetherness, the resort will feature many special touches including family sanctuaries like fire pits, swings and hammocks plus story spots scattered throughout the grounds.
