Fall festivities in full swing at Dollywood

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. – Now that it is officially October and the leaves are starting to change, it's the perfect time to plan a getaway to the Great Smokey Mountains.

They've got thousands of carved jack 'o lanterns and even a 40-foot pumpkin tree that will illuminate the night sky.

Ellen Liston with Dollywoood traveled from Pigeon Forge to talk with WSLS about the fall festivities. 

Great Pumpkin LumiNights has been recently named the country's best theme park Halloween event by USA Today. 

The annual harvest festival and Great Pumpkin LumiNights are both open and run through Nov. 2.
