From now until the end of October, Silver Dollar City hosts its annual Harvest and Pumpkin in the City Festival.
It is a 61-acre theme park in the heart of Branson, Missouri. The park opened on May 1, 1960. It is an 1800s theme park located on the site of one of the oldest attractions in the Ozark, Marvel Cave.
The Pumpkins in the City event has been expanded this year to make it even bigger and better! Discover new artisans every week and at night discover thousands of illuminated pumpkins.
You can visit artisans, head to Cowboy Emporium, or head to Cowboy Camp. Different craftsmen travel to this amazing theme park from all over the country to demonstrate their carpentry skills, fine arts, and heritage crafts. At the Cowboy Emporium, you can visit real cowboys inside the carousel barn! The smells of Camp Cowboy will make your mouth water for amazing food. Guests can participate as judges in a good old fashioned cooking between two “cookies” and help crown a defending champion.
You can also visit some of the largest pumpkins in the country! There are eight giant pumpkins on display ranging in weight from 1,000 to 1,400 pounds! With larger-than-life names like Brutus the Vast and Mighty Mabel, each of these pumpkins is cultivated by master gardeners before making their way to Mr. Wilsons farm.
New this year is the Foggy Hollow! Descend this winding path with over 300 strands of light cascading from above. Over 7600 points of light are synchronized to music and dance with a mysterious mist rolling around your feet. Foggy Hollow is located between Firemans Landing and Pumpkin Plaza.
Guests can experience all of this and more, including harvest treats, character photo ops, and a Pumpkin Dance Party. Tickets start at just $79 per day.
