An Old Time Christmas is Silver Dollar City’s most spectacular event. Each year the park is transformed into a winter wonderland with over 4 million lights, a light parade, a Christmas sing-along steam strain, and much more.
This year’s photo update comes from the weekend after Thanksgiving. The holiday weekend combined with temperatures that reached into the 70′s made this one of the busiest weekends ever at the park, coming within about 500 visitors of meeting the all-time attendance record. Even with the huge crowds my family had an excellent time as all three generations of my family left very happy. I always point out to everyone that even if the lines for the rides are too much, there’s so much to do at Silver Dollar City that you shouldn’t be dissuaded by heavy crowds. We took in the shows, watched the craftsmen, got some Christmas shopping done, saw the lights, and snuck in some rides here and there.
I’m not going to caption the photos this time as there’s not too much to say. I’ll just let the photos do the talking:
