The Branson Landing will again officially kick off the holiday season by celebrating the life and legacy of Branson star and Mr. Christmas himself, Andy Williams.
The “Most Wonderful Time of Year” parade, formerly the Holiday Promenade of Stars, is set for Sat., Nov. 3, 2018. The parade beings at 10 a.m. at the north end of the Promenade (near Belk department store) and ends on the opposite end near Bass Pro Shops.
The parade includes floats, marching bands, appearances by Branson entertainers, and of course a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Clay and Tina Cooper will serve as Grand Marshals.
Select entertainers will perform favorite Christmas songs after the parades’s conclusion on a stage in front of the iconic Branson Landing fountains. The lineup includes Clay Cooper, The Blues Brothers from Legends in Concert, Brandon and Megan Mabe, Jason and Desta Pritchett, The Lennon Sisters, The Hughes Brothers, New South, SIX, Janice Martin, the Showboat Branson Belle entertainers, Billy Yates, Melody Hart, and more.
The parade also marks the annual arrival of Santa at the Christmas Treehouse at the Landing, where he’ll appear daily until Dec. 24.
Local CBS affiliate KOLR 10 will videotape the parade and select performances to be later aired on Thanksgiving and rebroadcast throughout the holidays.Sign up now for the Branson Christmas newsletter to get these stories delivered straight to your inbox.
