  1. In June Story Telling Festaval is at Belle Island Village. Where is Belle Island Village located?

  2. In June there is a Story Telling Festival at Belle Island Village but where can I find Belle Island Village? How can I recieve more information about this event?

  3. Marilyn DeYoung
    You should be able to find directions at belleisland.com. Belle Island is not completed yet and they are at a stand still due to funding issues. So, make sure this is still the location for the event before you come. I think Pigeon Forge hosts this every year. The dates would probably stay the same even if the location changes.

  4. Two years ago I attended a couple of concerts at the Dick Clark American Bandstand oudoor theater. At that time it was said that a new indoor theater was being built and would be open the following year. As of this time, I have not heard anything about its completion. Can you tell me if the Dick Clark theater is finished and has concerts scheduled for this year?
