Track installation continues on Dragon Slayer

You'll notice that a new slanted support has sprouted up on the right

So it appears that this current level is about half installed and then it will raven turn up to the top level

Pumpkins in the City (SDC)


Welcome to Pumpkins in the City

Most of this festival takes place in the Grand Expo area

The area just outside the Culinary School

The large pumpkin scarecrow just outside the Red Gold Heritage Hall

Owl totem pole by the Wave Carousel

A very large owl near the Electro Spin

The Grand Expo Gazebo

The bat totem received a lighting upgrade this year

The large spider on Royal Tea Party

Little spiders hanging out overhead

A large cat near the Galleon

Lots of smiling pumpkins near the Royal Tea Party queue line

A cat totem near the Elephants

This is what Pumpkin Plaza looks like at night

It's a little easier to see things though when it is still light outside

There is a professional photo booth this year ... and yes that is a costumed character pumpkin guy

The large inflatable pumpkins are back

Prince Ivan (DJ group) was entertaining during a dance party

This way out of the Pumpkin Plaza will lead you to the pumpkin pathway that exits near Boatworks Theatre

There a lots of different animals on display

Insects too

The campfire is probably my favorite on that pathway

The inside joke from this summer continues down by Mystic River Falls in the form of these shark pumpkins

The pumpkin crafters returned this season.  This is the potter

Blown Glass

Time Traveler Ride Host

Love the pumpkins by Time Traveler


Besides the Pumpkin festivities, rides are open until park close (weather permitting) which allows for some awesome night rides on your favorite coasters.  The Festival runs through Halloween

Harvest Festival (SDC)


Welcome to the Harvest Festival at Silver Dollar City

There are some huge pumpkins just outside the Hospitality House

Keep an eye on that scarecrow.

Lots of pumpkin displays around the square

The new logo for the festival was on full dsiplay

The tree was pretty neat

Breast Cancer Awareness display

There were several crafters set up around the square, but not as many as normal due to Covid

The traditionals were there though

Stagecoach Journey, a new cowboy story show is being presented near the Corkscrew Pass

The Chuckwagon is back and is set up near the entrance to River Blast.  The cowboy stuff is set up in the Carousel Barn nearby.

Spoken 4 was performing today

Later on Southern Raised performed on that same stage

Makers Market is set up in the Frisco Barn

I think it is supposed to be like a General Store or something like that

The pumpkin house

Barry Brown was giving pumpkin carving demonstrations

Nearby there was an amazing pumpkin carver working.

As much fun as the Harvest Festival is during the day, once the sun goes down the park really comes to life.
