By  | 

Valdosta, GA-

Wild Adventures Theme Park (WA) welcomes legendary entertainment icon, Dolly Parton, for a once in a lifetime concert Friday, October 14 at 8:00 p.m. The park anticipates a busy evening and will open at 3:00 p.m. for guests to enjoy the park. All guests are encouraged to arrive as early as possible to ensure entrance into the park prior to the concert.

“Our guests love to bring their own chairs to watch concerts from the general seating area,” said WA Entertainment Director, John Ancona. “In order to have the best view, we recommend that guests arrive at 3:00 p.m. to set up their chairs in the concert area and to have time to enjoy the park before the concert. We expect this to be one of the largest concert audiences this season and ask that our guests keep that in mind when planning their visit.”

As a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, she has received numerous awards: seven Grammy; ten Country Music Association Awards; five Academy of Country Music Awards; and three American Music Awards.
