by Brittani Tuttle

An Old Time Christmas at Silver Dollar City is set to debut a new, 80-foot-tall, ‘biggest-of-its-kind” Christmas tree as part of the park’s two-month-long holiday event.

The height and density of lights on the tree will make it the first of its kind on Earth. The custom-designed tree will tower 8 stories in the night sky as the centerpiece of the new “Joy on Town Square.” The tree will feature hundreds of thousands of dancing, high-resolution lights with the ability to combine color, music, light, and animations.

“We engaged a team of the world’s most-celebrated lighting geniuses to create this just for Silver Dollar City guests,” said Brad Thomas, president of Silver Dollar City Attractions. “Joy on Town Square, with our new Christmas tree as the centerpiece, will include illumination of the Square’s buildings, trees and landscape, immersing our guests in an even greater Christmas adventure.”

Located next to “Joy on Town Square” will be Christmas In Midtown, which will feature 1.5 million LED lights decoding the heart of the “City” with colorful light tunnels and displays standing 9 stories high – including flying angels, reindeer, stars, snowflakes, and more.

Traveling through the City streets will be Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Christmas Light Parade, led by the famous reindeer with nine musical, lighted floats designed exclusively for Silver Dollar City. The floats will feature animated imagery like giant drumming bears and cymbal-playing penguins, all lit with 200,000 ultra-bright LED lights.
