Seasonal Scenes from Silver Dollar City!

The Old Time Christmas Festival at Silver Dollar City is a great way to get in the spirit of the holidays. There are music, shows, shopping and lights galore!  The festival runs the months of November and December so make plans for next year. Even if the air is shivery, there is plenty of hot chocolate and wassail to warm you from your nose to your toes.

A SDC take on Dicken's A Christmas Carol--- lots of singing, dancing, comedy and tugging on the heartstrings. 

This guy is just too much!!  Wonder how many 'Hey Mom, there's Santa!' he got...

Now that is a big tree! It puts on a light show at night which you can see in the video

My gingerbread goofballs!

Talon loved the cute Frosty The Snowman play. He thought the smart mouth raccoon and dumb mailman were very funny but when Frosty actually moved and talked-- that was too cool!  The first video shows a bit of Frosty moving and talking and the second shows the back of Talon as he gets into singing the song 'Let it Snow'

The parade of lights is very popular-- it is best to get in prime viewing position about 30 minutes early. Here are a few parade shots-- my little point and shoot can only do so much so I missed pretty much all  of the floats and cool characters-- but I'm upgrading soon-- more about that later!

  Funny ears and a funny schtick-- kept the riders entertained!

Pretty!  This is the only time of the year that SDC is open after dark so we get to see some of our favortite rides in a new light!

Look at my hubby working the headgear-- what a lucky girl I am! hahahahha 

Day two was uncomfortably cold and we didn't hold out till dark to ride the train through the animated lights. That was the only Christmasy thing we missed.  Talon and I still rode our fave rollercoaster, Thunderation, though-- We are tough!! 

Hot chocolate hits the spot! If you go to the right stand, the cocoa is made with milk with scoops of  chocolate chips and marshmallow added to your mug and a topping of whipped cream--plus a little candycane for a lagniappe-- didn't take us long to find the right stand!
