The 2-1/2 hour journey begins with a show in Munchkinland (at the depot) where Dorothy meets Glinda the Good Witch, who suggests she take a train that follows the Yellow Brick Road to see if the Wizard of Oz could help her find a way back to Kansas. Guests will board the train with Dorothy and several of her special friends as they travel down the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City and return. Children receive a special souvenir. More info

In honor of Tim Hill, a longtime employee at our very own trout hatchery who sadly passed away far too soon, we’re inviting you to fish and compete in this fun and lucrative tournament in his name. A portion of your $11 entry fee will be donated to a charity (yet to be determined) to help us pay tribute to Tim. You’ll be fishing for your share of $10,000 by catching beautiful fish in rivers all across the Qualla Boundary (excluding the 2.2 miles of catch-and-release waters), which will be stocked with tagged fish. When you catch one, you redeem it for cash prizes ranging from $25 to $1,000 at the Beetle Stage Pavilion next to the Cherokee Welcome Center on US 441. Open to all ages and for all legal fishing methods. Register to redeem cash prizes anywhere fishing licenses are sold.
