Pumpkin Nights is now called the Harvest Festival. Check out this more recent post. Silver Dollar City Harvest Festival
Silver Dollar City Pumpkin Nights is the park’s new fall festival. I’d seen advertisements for the event, and it looked really neat. So, we decided we’d take a quick weekend trip to check it out.
For those new to Silver Dollar City, this theme park is set is in the 1880’s. Located in Branson, Missouri, Silver Dollar City is fun for all ages.
The park has loads of rides and attractions for small children. Older kids, teens, and adventurous adults will love the thrill rides. For those of us who want to keep our feet on the ground, there are demonstrations by craftsmen and lots of live shows.
Silver Dollar City Pumpkin Nights
The pumpkin fun at Silver Dollar City Pumpkin Nights shines after dark, so the park stays open late.
So what is there to do during the Silver Dollar City Pumpkin Nights festival? Plenty!
Stroll through thousands of illuminated and carved pumpkins.
Savor a variety of pumpkin and fall treats such as caramel covered apples, cider, pumpkin topped funnel cakes, and more!
Scream at the top of your lungs on your favorite thrill rides.
Enjoy the family friendly rides the park has to offer.
Show off your cool moves at the Pumpkin Nights Dance Party.
Or, marvel at the artistry at the glass blowing demonstration.
While Pumpkin Nights is clearly intended to be enjoyed after dark, I’d suggest also visiting in the day!
Most of Silver Dollar City’s rides continue to operate until the park closes. But, many of the shops close earlier. And, most of the live shows and craftsmen demonstrations occur during the day.
Our weekend trip to Silver Dollar City Pumpkin Nights was a blast! And, I suspect judging by the number of visitors, that this fun fall festival will become an annual event.
Looking for a place to stay? We tried something new on this visit to Branson. We stayed on Indian Point just a few minutes away from Silver Dollar City at Still Waters Resort. I really loved that the resort ran a shuttle throughout the day to Silver Dollar City! It was so nice not to have to fight the traffic and get dropped off/picked up at the door!
