Silver Dollar City
Christmas is even bigger this year at Silver Dollar City’s "An Old Time Christmas,” with a brand new, custom-engineered and designed Christmas tree, towering eight stories in the air with state-of-the-art LED lights and special effects. “Joy on Town Square,” a $1.5 million investment, combines color, music and animated imagery to create an immersive experience during An Old Time Christmas, three-time winner of “Best Theme Park Holiday Event” in the nation by USA Today’s 10 Best poll.
The new tree will feature hundreds of thousands of dancing high-resolution lights with an infinite color-spectrum. With the entire tree’s output, along with the enhanced Square experience, it equals to more than one million LED lights.
“Joy on Town Square” joins Old Time Christmas festival favorites like “Christmas in Midtown,” the park’s 1.5 million LED light display—145 miles of lights covering 70,000 square feet—in the Midtown area of the park. Wreaths that are 24 feet high by 24 feet wide mark the entrance to 50-foot light tunnels, leading into “Christmas in Midtown” with light displays nine stories high, with dozens of stars, snowflakes and a massive turning globe.
The festival also features two original musical productions: “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol” and “It’s a Wonderful Life,” along with the 45 colorful costumed characters of Rudolph’s Holly Jolly™ Christmas Light Parade, a Living Nativity, a talking Christmas tree, strolling carolers and the park’s 100 craftsmen creating one-of-a-kind holiday items. Foods are holiday-focused too, with a prime rib buffet, fresh-made fruitcakes, ginger cookies and hot wassail.
