Experience the Old Time Christmas at Silver Dollar City
Christmas is one of the most awaited time of year. It is the perfect time to bond with your family and make memories together that you will cherish for the rest of your lives. This season deserves more than just a celebration and so we invite you to spend the holiday season in Branson, Missouri where the fun and excitement never stops. There are so many things to see and do in the entertainment capital of the Midwest, making your Christmas the best ever. One of the main attractions during Christmas is Silver Dollar City.
Silver Dollar City is famous for its thrill rides and attractions. But not only that because it is also famous for hosting the Old Time Christmas each year. The entire theme park is transformed into a holiday Christmas wonderland. This unique Christmas celebration blasts you to the past as you experience Christmas the old fashioned way. It is not just a wonderful celebration, but also a splendid retreat from the busy and crowded streets of the city during this season. Starting from November through December, watch out for these celebrations at Silver Dollar City's Old Time Christmas.
Christmas on Main Street
You will find the whole city decorated with dazzling lights. Feel free to roam the streets and see blinking light displays in every turn. At the center point in the square, there is a very tall Christmas tree ( approximately 5 stories tall) decorated with not less than 300,00 lights! Behold the beauty of the entire city with all of these lights.
Any Christmas celebration would not be complete without a bunch of Christmas carols playing in the background. Hear Christmas music, such as holiday songs, traditional carols, and new favorites, being played all through the theme park throughout the season. These songs will echo through the park the joy of Christmas and will make this a musical experience to remember.
Live Musical Shows
Not only Christmas carols have music, but also the Christmas-themed and other shows in the theme park. Visit the Opera House Theater and be able to watch The Christmas Carol by Dickens, performed by fourteen actors along with period clothing, beautiful scenery and special effects at par with Broadway. You can also watch The Living Nativity, which is another performance about the birth of Christ in Bethlehem. If you want more, there are also shows scheduled regularly.
Silver Dollar City Rides and Attractions
One attraction you wouldn’t want to miss is the light parade that marches through the city twice every evening. It is an exciting parade for all ages that make you feel the spirit of an Old Time Christmas at the theme park. And if you are craving for Silver Dollar City's rides, you might want to try Frisco Silver Dollar Line Steam Train, roller coaster Fire-In-The-Hole, Powder Keg, The Giant Swing, and many more, but are subjected to the present weather of your visit.
Traditional Christmas Cooking
Complete your visit by sampling some delicious Christmas cooking favorites, such as turkey, Christmas pudding, or roasted chestnuts. Savor these scrumptious treats while you enjoy different rides, festivities, and attractions in Silver Dollar City.
