Anybody been to the New Christmas show yet?  thoughts?

I think I am going this saturday..   Hopefully better than the summer show,   

But I know It wont be as good as last year since they let Casandre' go.  Hard to beat her talent and voice on any Christmas songs....

Ridden dirt dirt bikes for over 50 years,
3 and 4 wheelers of all sizes and makes and models. over 40 years..
But I am thing about getting into a Side by Side Racer (polaris razor for example).

Other Parks / Dollywood to get new Dinner Show?
« on: October 05, 2018, 10:20:30 PM »
Saw this on another site...

"Dolly Parton is bringing her popular Pirates Voyage dinner and a show from the southern coast of Myrtle Beach, S.C. to the Great Smoky Mountains.
The country music queen announced Thursday plans to open the attraction at her Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., by spring 2019"

If it works, will we see something like it in about 3 years?

Branson Talk / Mr. B's Ice Cream Parlor.
« on: September 13, 2018, 07:38:51 PM »
As many of you know, I am friends with The Haygood bunch, that being said. I am pleased to make this announcement for them....

Mr. B's Ice Cream Parlor is Located in old downtown Branson, On the Corner SE corner of Main and Veterens Blvd.. Just across the street and West and up the hill from Dicks 5 & 10.. .

I am happy to announce that there are new owners for this business.!! YES!! Thats right, Three of The Haygood brothers went together and purchased it. They actually got possession on Labor Day Weekend. The previous owner is staying on for a bit, to help with vendors and suppliers.

You will see many of the old faces behind the counter and of course new faces too.

They are not planning any BIG changes, but rather lots of little ones. They will be keeping the 50's theme ice cream parlor.

The menu is going to be tweaked and improved, with very few deletions, but several new items to be added, again this will happen over the next few weeks..

Probably some new seating, booths and such.

Since The Haygoods are involved you can expect some major lighting changes and additions, Both inside and outside..... Lots of L.E.D. of course..!!

Being this late in the year, I am sure there will be lots of stuff added and modified through the winter months.

They are open for business, and looking forward to the fall season in town, stop in, have a cone, or chili pie, Ice cream sundae, or chili dog, or regular hot dog or choose anything off the menu, take a minute and relax, check it out and look around for the guys. No telling who may be hanging around...Tell them hi, and let them know about your visit..

Branson Talk / Summer Car Cruise to change weekend in Branson
« on: March 07, 2018, 02:50:22 PM »

Not sure the PTB thought this through...  SMH

Cruise will be in Sept.,  AFTER school starts.  This will count out the family attending all 4 days, now will only be there 1 day, Saturday..??

No Midnight Cruise...  hundreds of people usually line up to watch this event on Sat. night.... BUT not this year.. Thye will have to find something else to do... OR they wont even come to town.... :(

That doesnt even count the fact that thousands of people schedule this weekend a year in advance... Now those people will have to scramble and change room reservations and make other arrangments...
