New for this year’s event, the park will debut “Coming Home For Christmas,” a show celebrating family traditions, featuring a live band accompanying 14 singers and dancers. Returning favorites like “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol,” “The Living Nativity,” and “The Saloon Frontier Fa-La-La Follies” fill out the park’s entertainment lineup, as does Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Parade.
As guests stroll the park, they’ll behold 6.5 million lights, 1,000 Christmas trees, 600 wreaths, and more than three miles of ribbon and garland. For a scenic way to see the lights and get off their feet, guests can enjoy a ride on the Frisco Sing-Along Steam Train or get a bird’s-eye view of the decor from one of the park’s thrill attractions operating during the event.
Of course, no holiday celebration is complete without food. An Old Time Christmas will boast a wide array of specialty dining options, from selections you might find at a formal holiday dinner to smaller items like hot chocolate and the park’s signature Miner’s Beef Stew. Guests can purchase tasting passports to experience different dishes throughout their visit.
For those looking for that perfect holiday gift, search no further than craftspeople on-hand whose glass-blowing, wood carving, and pottery create unique, homegrown souvenirs.
An Old Time Christmas is included with regular park admission to Silver Dollar City, which begins at $79 plus tax. To plan your visit, head to silverdollarcity.com.
