Did anyone notice the most recent copy of the SDC times where it refers to "Craft Days and Pumpkins" for 2020 rather than "Craft Days and Pumpkin Nights"? I thought that was odd. Perhaps it was a typo.

I looked at website, it is listed as "Craft Days and Pumpkin Nights"

I believe the website is still advertising this year's festival and not the coming year.  Not that it means anything because it probably is just a typo.

Pics all look good.  I am a little surprised...  (if they are done with it),  that they didnt do a little more luvn to the Lake. .
Surprised they didnt dig out some of the lake bottom on the edges to give it more "depth" .
I see the decorative rock on the northside.
did they also do that on south side?
Also the big flat stones in the 1 picture, is that going to be the new lake elevation?

If the answer is yes to the above, that lake will look all new and look great! Especially if the put a sprinkler/fountain in the middle of it..

That whole area is going to be NICE!!!

At least they've had good weather to get a lot of work done this January. Looks like the majority of the month is going to be fairly mild. No huge snow storms on the radar or prolonged cold.

I am a bit disappointed that they had to cut costs a little and go with cheaper finishes on the buildings, but at least it still fits the theme and is even similar to a few other spots in the city where the metal siding is used. Since all these buildings are being finished similarly at once, it contributes to the "Rivertown" feel.

Yep.  I seems that I wasn’t the only one thinking Steve’s post didn’t age well  ;D

Lol, true, this weekend notwithstanding though it's been a pretty mild January and predicted to be a pretty mild winter overall. Of course now that I say that we'll be in for some epic snow storms.

Got an e-mail today titled "10 Things You Don't Want To Miss in 2020!" and a couple things caught my eye.

Firstly, I don't remember if they'd already had info/images up for the new cinnamon bread shop, but they're available now on the 2020 Rivertown page.


(image from the e-mail)


(image on the website)

Quote from site: "Silver Dollar City’s world-famous cinnamon bread finds a NEW home in Rivertown at Clara Belle’s Cinnamon Bread. Here our culinary craftsmen are hard at work creating the ooey-gooey goodness your family craves with double the oven space and more options like Apple Cinnamon Bread, Peach Cinnamon Bread, Time Traveler Cinnamon Bread drizzled with caramel and chocolate and of course, the classic original…with so many choices one loaf is never enough!"

And the cowboys are coming back to the Fall Festival!!!

Looks like they are aware of a lot of the backlash that was being posted on various sites/social media regarding the "lackluster" 2019 season (most notably the backlash on the lack of crafts and cowboys during the fall festival) and they are responding appropriately to it.

Lackluster? A new huge festival and a new tree are far from lackluster and the crowds during the fall and winter echo that point
