Christmas signs are everywhere in Branson, MO. Their theatres start the Christmas shows the first week in November. Some run right to Christmas but several shut down about the first or second week in December so the staff can celebrate Christmas with their families. Same with silver dollar city and the fountain with lights and fire at the Branson landing.

OK!
The Big Guy himself!


1) Santa awaits his first visitor. To not appear empty-handed, he holds a stuffed toy.
(Or is that an elf?)




2) Side view.




3) Santa greets a visitor who is a bit wary, staying on the floor with mother.

I'll see if i can add some non retail store pics below...it worked!

Top is Andy Williams Christmas show at Moon River Theatre showing the Lennon Sisters with the Osmonds. Next is a pre show with carolers at the Sight and sound Theatre for The Miracle Of Christmas. And lastly, the 5 story Christmas tree at silver dollar city...timed to lights and music.
