Celebrate the 16th Annual Ozark Mountain Christmas in Branson

You'd be hard pressed to find a Scrooge in Branson at this time of the year: All of Branson gets caught up in the Ozark Mountain Christmas. Starting November 1st, the festivities, which include lighting displays, festivals and special holiday shows, continue through December 31st.

A key component of Ozark Mountain Christmas is the Branson Area Festival of Lights. Visitors to the Branson area will find over five million lights shimmering across the city and countryside. The highlight of the Lights Festival is the two-mile stretch of Branson Hills Parkway, bedecked with over 500,000 lights, a nativity scene, a Victorian Christmas Scene, sailboat races. You'll find illuminated reindeer leaping over the parkway along with animated displays.

Leading the special holiday shows and events are the Radio City Christmas Rockettes in their final year in Branson (10/31 - 12/6). There's the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede Christmas (10/29 -12/30), the Shoji Tabuchi Christmas Show (11/1 - 12/14), and the Hughes Brothers Old Fashioned Christmas Show (11/1 - 1/1). Other Christmas performances include: Andy Williams, the Lennon Brothers, and Country Tonite. And Branson's oldest theme park, Silver Dollar City celebrates the holidays from 11/8 - 12/28.

Nothing takes the chill out of December weather like relaxing next to the massive stone fireplace at Chateau on the Lake. A pampered stay at a luxury resort makes a great present, and Branson offers several options: beyond Chateau on the Lake, you can choose a stay at the Lodge of the Ozarks or the Radisson Hotel. The well-appointed Holiday Hills Condo Resort is a perfect spot for a holiday home away from home.

According to the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, about 1.5 million people include the Ozark Mountain Christmas in their holiday plans. It's doubtful you'll hear a "Bah Humbug" out of any of them.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
This was by far the best activity we did as a family on our vacation to branson. Our boys, 3yrs and 6yrs, loved every minute of it. I was very surprised that it held our 3yr old's attention as well as it did, he was mesmerized. We almost skipped the pre-show but were so glad that we didn't because it was great! The food was good and the animals beautiful. The riders were skilled and great at what they do. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Shoji Tabuchi Show
This was our 2nd time to see this show, and we loved it even more than the first time. There is such a variety that everyone should find something to love about it. I loved seeing christina so involved in the show, and her singing was very good. She was about 9 or 10 when we were here last. She sure grew up to be a very lovely young woman. The extras in the show are great and trained very well. So much goes into the production of every segment of the show, and i can't wait to see the christmas production. Loved the bathrooms. They are something to see. Thanks to all involved in helping the ladies out with so much space. Loved everything about the show--even shoji's humor.

Hughes Brothers Show
What a pleasant surprise to see the whole family perform, the talent of the children was just mind blowing, especially the violin part. We were thrilled to see them even working the concessions and doing everything and being everywhere, such great young people.
