branson resortThe holidays are closing in, and many are planning out the gifts for their family members while children are filling their lists. Instead of giving the same thing as everyone else this year, give them a gift that will not lose its shine, and they will never forget. Give them the gift of a holiday getaway to StoneBridge Resort. A trip to this Branson resort is the perfect place to take the family to enjoy the holidays and the nearby local events.

Trains and Parades

On December 3rd, take the family out to nearby Hollister to see the Santa Train. It arrives at the Historic Hollister Train Depot at 1:30 pm. Kids can get their faces painted, receive goodie bags, and of course, see Santa. Your next stop will be back in downtown Branson. For the 69th year, the city of Branson is putting on its annual “Adoration Parade.” At dusk, the largest nativity scene in the area will be lit, and then the Adoration Parade begins. Jump into the spirit of the holidays with this festive community activity that everyone can enjoy.

Breakfast is often considered the most important meal of the day, so why not enjoy it with jolly old St Nick? In Branson, Santa is around to take time with the kids to fuel up for a long day of checking his lists and getting ready for Christmas. On December 9th, you can find Santa hanging out at the Branson RecPlex from 8:30 am to 11:30 am in three separate sessions. You may want to buy your $5 ticket in advance or reserve a spot because each of the three sessions has a 100 person limit.

Lighting up the Nights

Holiday lights are one thing everyone can get out and take delight in, and Branson is a hot spot with several dazzling displays. From November 4th to December 30th, Silver Dollar City hosts An Old Time Christmas, with 6.5 million twinkling lights, a parade led by Rudolph himself, and two original holiday musical productions. This event is one you will not want to miss! Other light shows in the area include the drive-through displays: Branson’s Gift Of Lights in front of the Royal Oak Charcoal Plant and the Trail Of Lights at The Shepherd of the Hills located at the Shepherd of The Hills Homestead. You can find light shows for every night of your visit to Branson, MO.
