Branson Landing’s 1st Annual Liberty Light Up

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…America’s independence will be celebrated across the country and Branson is no exception…especially at The Branson Landing—Branson’s premiere shopping and dining entertainment destination located in Historic Downtown Branson on Lake Taneycomo.

The local community and visitors are invited to “Light Up” their Independence Day celebration a day early, beginning on Thursday, July 3rd with a host of family friendly activities and events planned throughout the day, ending with a special all-American musical tribute and state-of-the-art fireworks extravaganza! Beyond your standard July 4th fireworks celebration, the Landing’s first annual “Liberty Light Up” promises to light up the lives of young and old alike. From an outdoor “Red, White & Blue Town Square BBQ” sponsored by Famous Dave’s BBQ to some All-American family games and contests including, The Red, White & Blue Bubblegum Contest, The Boom Blaster, Hoola Hoop Contest, Uncle Sam Bean Bag Toss and more, the day’s activities will celebrate the American way of life!

Plus, the celebration continues into the night with the kick off of the Landing’s Tribute to America Concert Series with a special musical performance by “Bucky and the Boys”, culminating into an amazing star-spangled fire in the sky display over Lake Taneycomo, produced especially for this extraordinary event by Premier Pyrotechnics, Inc.

“The local community has long loved Bucky Heard as the lead singer with the Horn Dawgs and his show-stopping performances at The Legends Theatre as one of the Blues Brothers – to his latest run with the one and only, Andy Williams. His amazing talent and fan base is duly noted by his being honored as the “Branson Singer of the Year in 2005” and, for being the voice that sings on the unforgettable “Listen to the Music” Commercial, promoting Branson. And now… “this much enjoyed artist will bring an unforgettable cast of talented musicians to our outdoor concert stage in front of the beautiful Branson Landing Fountains for a special salute to American music for both locals and visitors to enjoy,” stated Tammy Scholten, Director of Marketing for the Branson Landing.

The evening’s FREE concert, beginning at 7:30 PM in front of the Fountains launches the start of the Landing’s Summer Lineup Concert Series, showcasing some of the best loved American music throughout July and August, as well as some dates in September.
