Local family wins thousands in national challenge


Pigeon Forge, Tennessee – A Northeast Texas family has won $10,000 after winning the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee Family Challenge.

The Johnny and Melisa Shreve family of Lone Oak outlasted four other families from across the country in challenges that included a go-cart race, a stick horse race, an obstacle course and a trivia test.

The Shreves also got a chance to meet Dolly Parton, whose Dollywood theme park is in Pigeon Forge, the town that sponsored the contest.

The Pigeon Forge Family Challenge has been playing out in a month-long series of webcasts.
