Show~A DICKENS’ CHRISTMAS CAROL in the Opry House
Also IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE in the Red Gold Barn
The Sing Along Train is always fun.
Be sure to stay late enough for the Tree lighting in the Town Square, and the Rudolf parade to follow.
Food~ Don know if there is any "special" food choices for tye Christmas season. Other than maybe hot chocolate, Wassail, and the make your own S'Mores. But lots of good eats to be found throughout the park.
One treat we always have is the Cinnamon Bread at Sullivan's Mill. Get it warm, and enjoy it right there.

Don't miss the Nativity in the Riverfront Playhouse!

My biggest don't miss is always the Hot Chocolate with "the works"! Yum!!

I understand the big tree up in the Square is newer and bigger this year. The Lighting will be hosted every night by Allen Asbury, who is the featured vocalist at the Echo Hollow show during the summer, is part of the cast of Oh Happy Day, has had some chart-topping recordings in the Christian music genre, and happens to be a good friend and my worship pastor.

Yep, their Hot Apple Dumplings topped with cinnamon ice cream is a seasonal favorite of mine also! And yes, the warm cinnamon bread is even better on a cold fall day/night...anymore, I have been bringing a bottle of the soft squeezable butter with me....to pour all over each slice/torn off piece of that bread...makes it even better! Also noticed this year, where in years past the cinnamon bread was kinda a "secret" amongst many of us, since it was difficult for most people to find...but now there is a big sign in Town Square pointing directly to Sullivans Mill...

If Pumpkin Nights is any indication, yes!
They had several times on weekends that all the parking lots were full. 18,000 to 24,000 people was common.

your best bet to speed up the process of getting in and getting parked is to approach from Branson West, especially later in the day
