SILVER DOLLAR CITY THEME PARK OLD TIME CHRISTMAS

This year is the perfect time to visit Silver Dollar City Theme Park during the Christmas Festival.  Silver Dollar City added another 1.5 million lights to its already 6 million lights.  I am rarely speechless but the amazing light display leaves me breathless.  It is fabulous!  Lights line every inch of every building, rooftop, tree, and so much more.  It is seriously difficult to describe.  If you do not read any further, it would be O.K. as long as you are checking out more information on Christmas at Silver Dollar City.

Christmas At Silver Dollar City with Millions of Lights

Silver Dollar City Theme Park is a family-friendly. 

My family and I have been visiting this park for over 20 years.  It is rare to find a place where kids, teens, parents, and even grandparents will have lots to do in the same place.  The park offers rides for all ages including several roller coasters, shows, food, craftsmen and even a Culinary school.  You can also watch silversmiths, bakers, candy makers, blacksmiths, glass blowers, basket makers, and much more.  

Why do I love Silver Dollar City Theme Park especially during the fall?

I cannot think of a better way to celebrate fall than walking around Silver Dollar City theme park.  Autumn in the Ozarks is beautiful!  I love spending time in the fresh fall air while observing all the sights, sounds and smells that Silver Dollar City has to offer.  The Ozarks are breathtaking in the autumn with rolling hills of brilliant colors.  Silver Dollar City is located in the Ozarks in Branson, Missouri.  On top of the natural beautiful fall colors that fill trees everywhere, Silver Dollar City is decorated with festive fall decorations.  Happy scarecrows and pumpkins line the streets, and scream fall is in the air.

Speaking of Scarecrows

My special needs son could not get enough of the scarecrow who was pretending to be part of the fence.  As we entered the park, the scarecrow below came alive.  He started talking to us while hanging on the fence.  He surprised us by jumping down off the fence.  After getting down,  he had his picture made with my special needs son, Caleb.  Thank you, Mr. Scarecrow.

Notice the lights in the picture.  Silver Dollar City is ready to celebrate Christmas with millions of Christmas lights.
