Fans follow the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy Fridays in June, but the North Carolina event sold out immediately. The Facebook page “Land of Oz – Beech Mountain, NC” is the go-to spot for people offering tickets at face-value. This is an unforgettable experience, if you can just get tickets! http://www.landofoznc.com/journeywithdorothy
