This is a great place for a fun vacation, something for all ages. We like to go mid-week as it is not as crowded
Don't get me wrong I'm very glad I went BUT little disappointed with the lights and the parade. It was very busy and crowded but people still rolled thru the park. The decorations were pretty, and blended in perfectly with the park. Loved the barn with all the trees. Saloon show was a little campy, even more than I remember. Parade was not as expected....really not worth waiting in the cold for. Tree was beautiful and the lights timed to music was nice. Overall nice. Worth seeing once
During a recent visit to Branson, my family and I always make sure to spend a day at Silver Dollar City. The day we went, they had the lighting of their Christmas tree as well as a parade. The atmosphere is unique as it gives you a taste of what life was like in the 1800s. There are blacksmiths, glass blowers, and woodcrafters among other things crafted by hand. Even the park employees dress in old fashioned clothing from the 1800s. The crafts, food, and other souvenirs are one of a kind and many are made by hand. Looking for something different to do? SDC has things for kids and adults to enjoy. It even has modern era theme park rides for all to enjoy weather and season permitting.
We took our grandson and his girlfriend and enjoyed the Christmas lights and music. We ate supper there and watched the parade. It was very cold, but beautiful.
