This is what Dollywood calls their fireworks shows. Every night during Summer Celebration, Dollywood goes out with a bang. The park stays open later for guests to enjoy rides well into the night. And then, when the velvety southern sky is black and dark, the whole park is treated to a fireworks extravaganza to rival any Fourth of July celebration you’ve ever seen. 

The fireworks go off every night and the experience is never exactly the same.
