Showboat Branson Belle specializes in military and veteran events providing a delicious meal with dessert, a scenic cruise on beautiful Table Rock Lake, and world-class entertainment that pays tribute to America. During each performance on the grand 1890s paddlewheel riverboat, military personnel are given an opportunity to stand and be recognized by the audience for their service and dedication to this amazing country in which we live. Patriotic musical numbers are also played throughout the show honoring our armed forces.
Military groups looking for a more intimate moment together may pre-arrange a complimentary military ceremony for their group—72 hour advance reservation is required. Taking place one hour prior to cruise, the 15 minute ceremony features:
- Presentation of Military and U.S flags
- Star Spangled Banner (on CD)
- Pledge of Allegiance led by group
- Branch of service hymn led by group
- Address by Member of Unit / group
- Reading of names (optional)
- Closing prayer led by member of group
- Amazing Grace (on CD)
- Taps (on CD)
For your convenience a podium, microphone, sound system, music CDs, memorial wreath and stand are provided. The POW MIA Flag is also available upon request. The ceremony takes place in the White River Landing Gazebo at the base of the Showboat Branson Belle loading dock.
