USA Today’s 10Best voters have again named Silver Dollar City’s Christmas festival the nation’s “Best Theme Park Holiday Event.” It’s the fifth time “An Old Time Christmas” has earned the honor.
The ranking is the result of several weeks of online voting on the USA Today website.
Silver Dollar City’s Christmas celebration began in 1988, with strands of lights and Christmas caroling in Town Square. It has since grown in to a best-in-class festival featuring 6.5 million lights, two Broadway-style Christmas shows, Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Light Parade, the “Christmas in Midtown Light Spectacular,” endless holiday comfort foods, and much more.
The most recent festival addition was “Joy on Town Square” in 2019. The experience includes an eight-story LED special effect Christmas tree capable of displaying a variety of graphics from more than a million points of illumination.
“An Old Time Christmas” runs now through Dec. 30.Sign up now for the Branson Christmas newsletter to get these stories delivered straight to your inbox. Also find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and join the Branson Christmas Fanatics group on Facebook.
