ABC/Image Group LAFriday may be Cinco de Mayo, but for Dolly Parton, the focus will be on mountains instead of margaritas.

The country-pop legend returns to her beloved hometown of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in the Smoky Mountains this weekend to help kick off the first tourist season since the area was devastated by wildfires last winter.

Starting at 11 a.m. local time, Parton will greet guests at the grand opening of her new Smoky Mountain Adventures dinner attraction and show. You can tune in to watch the festivities on Facebook.

Then, on Friday night at 6 p.m., Dolly will serve as Grand Marshal of the 32nd Annual Homecoming Parade given in her honor. Fifty-thousand people typically line the parade route each year to catch a glimpse of the music star.
