An Old Time Christmas (SDC)

Welcome to An Old Time Christmas at Silver Dollar City.

The large Christmas tree dominates the main square area.

A nice photo opportunity featuring gingerbread men.

The Frisco Barn is home to Jingle Bell Junction again this year.

Lots of amazing Christmas decor is available for purchase here.

Flooded Mine is looking great with lots of Christmas cheer.

Looking inside the Warden's office.

All of the prisoner miners have on Santa hats.

Seriously go ride this ride.  It looks great.

The park, once again, has 2 Broadway-style shows for this festival.  The first one we watched is "It's A Wonderful Life" which is performing in the Red Gold Heritage Hall.

The show features elaborate song and dance numbers.

One of my favorite sequences is "Money Makes the World Go Round"

"Always Look On the Bright Side of Life" is another great sequence.

It's a great show and consistently plays to a packed house.

The long running crowd favorite, Dickens Christmas Carol, returns to the Opera House.

This is by far the best musical performance you'll ever see at a theme park.

This show always plays to packed houses.  Get in line early if you want to see it.

Time to look at the lights around the park.
