Silver Dollar City
Marking the biggest fall in the 1880s-style theme park’s nearly six-decade history, Silver Dollar City’s Harvest Festival lights up the autumn sky with the all-new Pumpkin Nights, transforming The City into a glowing-orange wonderland with thousands of carved pumpkins lining the park’s streets.
The all-new “Pumpkin Pathway,” “Pumpkin Plaza” and “Woodland Hike” areas are the focal points for this new no-scare event, featuring larger-than-life icons like giant scarecrows, cats, owls and other fall-time characters shining in the dark.
A master pumpkin carver transforms pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors into artful-masterpieces, while vibrant pumpkin characters roam The City streets with friendly greetings and photo opportunities. Food at the park also adopts a fall look and palette, with pumpkin-flavored churros and ice cream, glow-in-the-dark beverages, whoopie pumpkin pies and classic fall-time favorites like caramel apples and cider.
During the daytime, Craft Days debuts a pulse-raising, French-Canadian production show – an acrobatic musical with singing and dancing lumberjacks in a high-energy, internationally-acclaimed stage show. Also by day, in a setting filled with colorful pumpkins, Silver Dollar City Craftsmen welcome visiting artisans, with select new crafters each week in The City streets, and the all new “Makers’ Market.”
The park will stay open until 9 p.m. each day for Pumpkin Nights, and even later on Fridays and Saturdays until 10 p.m., with almost all of the park’s 40 rides and attractions open, perfect for the new dance parties, face painting and live entertainment happening in “Pumpkin Plaza.”
