Fall in Branson, Missouri means the biggest new fall event in
Silver Dollar City‘s 60-year history:
Harvest Festival, Craft Days & Pumpkin Nights
So Many Pumpkins!
Pumpkins lined walkways and decorated street lamps. Pumpkin sculptures of cats, spiders, and owls stood between 6′ and 26′ tall around the park. Lighted pumpkins strung overhead crisscrossed the pathway to Pumpkin Plaza. Even Master Pumpkin Carver, Barry Brown, from Denver, Colorado, was on hand to demonstrate his craft. Hundreds of Brown’s custom-designed pumpkins that turned
More than 10,000 carved pumpkins decorated the 1880’s theme park. There were 2,500 custom carved pumpkins, 5,000 real pumpkins and “Funkin’ Pumpkins.” Pumpkins ranged in weight from 3 lbs., to 250 lbs.
Silver Dollar City
Silver Dollar City located in Branson, Missouri, is an 1880’s style amusement park that opened in May 1960.
The park boasts more than 40 rides and attractions, and 100 resident craftsmen and women.
Earlier in 2019, Silver Dollar City was named one of the top 5 amusement parks in the country, according to USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards.
In addition, Outlaw Run, the park’s wooden roller coaster ranked in the Top 10 Best Roller Coaster poll from the media company.
As much fun as all of the pumpkins were, the highlights of the festival for me were the true creatives. Talented craftsmen and women demonstrated their skills; creating beautiful glass vases and figurines, functional and decorative pottery, intricately designed and stitched home decor, and so much more. And there’s a new Maker’s Market to showcase the works of these American artisans during the festival.
