This year we are pleased to be able to confirm 3 VIP guests on our
schedule already, Emily (Schulman) Webster, Mike Hickman and Jo Doster,
with more expected to join the list as the time grows nearer.
This will be Emily's first trip to ChristyFest, and her first visit
back to Townsend since the filming of the series. Emily portrayed one of
everyone's favorite character's, Ruby Mae Morrison. The red-haired young
girl who loved and tried to imitate her beloved "Teacher".
We're thrilled to have Emily join us this year. Jo Doster has been with
us several times previously. As a Casting Director for the series, she
is always great fun and lends insight into the series creation. Fan
favorite Mike Hickman, "Birds Eye Taylor" will be on hand to
"skere the children and charm the ladies"! Actually the
children love Mike, and he can be found on the last day of the festival
leading the group on a farewell hike.
So, we'd love to have folks join us for an amazing, informative and
family friendly vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains! For more
