Dolly Parton made a surprise appearance at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge on Friday.

The legendary country music star was there to announce upcoming events, including fall harvest and Christmas season events.

Parton also announced a new children's album, which will feature music from Dollywood's "Little Engine Playhouse."

She also talked about how the greater Gatlinburg area is on the rebound from last November's devastating fires.

"Well, yes, we can tell everybody that we are back in business because a lot of the people that were damaged in the fire, they were people that really worked in the tourism business," Parton said Friday. "So, we really need for people to know that we are not destroyed, we're just damaged, and we're getting all of that together."

Dollywood's fall harvest and Christmas events will run from late September 2017 through the beginning of January 2018.
