The holiday season is coming and your favorite Branson celebrities are already preparing their Christmas shows! Check out a few of our favorites below!
Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Christmas Show starts on October 24 when their signature arena will be transformed into a winter wonderland. Traditional Christmas songs fill the arena as the actors set the stage for a gorgeous live nativity scene complete with real camels on their way to Bethlehem. To cap off the show jolly Santa Claus will arrive in a sleigh full of goodies. Of course, we can’t forget the rivalry that is always a part of a Dixie show. The audience is separated into the North and South Poles to cheer on their elves. No Dixie show is complete without a delicious four-course meal. The show runs until December 29.
