Wintertime is about to heat up in Branson.
Hot Winter Fun is in full swing and will run through February, according to Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce officials.
According to the chamber, mild winter weather in the Ozarks, combined with seasonal special offers for value-minded visitors, creates an ideal opportunity to get away and enjoy Branson’s shows, attractions, shopping, museums, championship golf, world-class fishing, cozy lakeside resorts and much more.
“If you’ve got a case of the winter blues and a little cabin fever, get up and get away to Branson,” said Buck Trent, renowned banjo picker and country humorist. “We’re open for fun. In Branson, we’ve got the answer to your winter doldrums.”
Branson is celebrating 50 Years of Live Music Shows in 2009.
The featured event of Hot Winter Fun involves a collection of Branson entertainers.
The Hot Winter Fun Big Show is scheduled for Feb. 9 at the Jim Stafford Theatre in Branson.
It will include the musical variety visitors have come to expect in Branson and can be found during Hot Winter Fun. The variety includes Big Band, Broadway, country, swing, rock ‘n’ roll, pop, bluegrass, jazz, gospel, patriotic, classical and more.
There is music made famous by contemporary composers, cowboy poets, cinematic blockbusters, ‘50s heartthrobs, ‘60s pop bands, and today’s Top 40 artists can be heard from early morning until late at night in Branson.
Chamber officials say that with average daytime temperatures that rise well into the 50s, the winter months are a great time to visit Branson.
In fact, trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo is ideal this time of year. There’s no shortage of things to do and see.
Many area resorts and lodging properties offer discounts during the winter months.
