Tons of shopping or take the trolley down to the Landing or to Bass Pro Shops!! This afternoon, we depart for our show, Daniel O’Donnell. Half regular show and half Christmas. One of the area’s most popular artist, Daniel quickly became popular in Ireland and the UK, and has gained legions of fans across the United States. He’s known for his charisma and engaging stage presence as he performs a mix of country and Irish folk music, and always creates a close bond with his audience. Daniel has appeared on popular television shows in Ireland and the UK and won various awards, including Donegal Person of the Year and Irish Entertainer of the Year three times. He’s had numerous top 40 albums and singles in the UK, and starred in seven concert specials on PBS in the United States. In 2011, he became the first artist to have an album on the UK charts for 25 consecutive weeks. “Daniel O’Donnell’s” Branson performances showcase his blend of traditional Irish ballads, country favorites, and traditional gospel with that enchanting Irish charm! If you’ve not yet had the pleasure, don’t miss his incredible show and join those who’ll be counting the days until his next visit to Branson! After the show, we will enjoy Dinner (Pre-Paid) at the Stage Door Restaurant. Then, we’re off to the Dutton Family Christmas. It’s more than just a show, it’s an experience . . . The Dutton Experience! The Dutton Show adds a little extra flare and a lot of superb talent to the theater district with its phenomenal performances, but there is so much more to the Complex than just the theater: The Duttons own and operate the theater’s conjoining hotel, the Dutton Inn, and its gift shop, Abby’s Tourist Trap. The Complex invites guests to settle in and relax with its accommodating atmosphere and convenient location not only to Dutton-featured facilities, but also to nearby attractions. The Dutton Experience will leave you longing for just a little more time in its intimate environment.

Then we will depart for our last Show – Miracle of Christmas at Sight & Sound Theatre. After decades of crushing Roman rule, the Hebrew people are losing hope. When will the promised Messiah come? Into the midst of this turmoil, young Mary is told she will miraculously bear God’s son. Who can even believe such a thing? Celebrate the season with your whole family as the Christmas story unfolds right before your eyes. After the show, we’ll drive through the Branson’s Gift of Lights, lights up the winter nights with amazing structures of the season. From snowflakes to the gifts given in the Twelve Days of Christmas, Noah and the Ark, or the Christmas Tree Forest. More than ten million lights are used to create the displays that help make this special event possible.

After, we will return to our hotel.

Stop in at the Sugar Leaf Bakery while you’re there for a scrumptious cafe snack or Mel’s Hard Luck Cafe, home of the singing servers and lots of delicious ice cream desserts.
