Dolly Parton look-a-likes descended on Bay St. Louis, Miss. last month.
A number of men and women visited the area dressed head-to-toe in Parton’s iconic look, complete with sky-high blonde wigs and sequin gowns, for Dolly Should Festival, described by the Sun Herald as “a Dolly Parton-themed Second Saturday Art Walk.”
The event, designed to celebrate the “Coat of Many Colors” singer’s upcoming 70th birthday on Jan. 19, involved an afternoon of old-fashioned fun made-up of a petting zoo, square dancing lessons and even a Dolly Parton lip-sync show.
“Dolly is such an iconic figure that we decided to something for her,” festival creator Ann Madden said, adding that she’s hoping Parton herself will attend the big celebration next year. “Dolly should come to Bay St. Louis,” she said. “We want this to be an annual event… we hope that she will be with us next year.”
Though the “9 to 5” singer is yet to speak out on the soon to be annual event held in her honor, the star has been getting sentimental about her legendary career on social media in the past few weeks.
