Silver Dollar City is once again nominated for the 2023 Best Theme Park Holiday Event by USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. In hopes of a sixth win, the 1880s theme park is appealing to loyal friends to vote every day, on every device at silverdollarcity.com/vote. Voting concludes on Wednesday, November 29 at 10:59 p.m. CT.
“This nomination highlights the world-class offerings of Silver Dollar City,” said Brad Thomas, President of the Silver Dollar City Company. “An Old Time Christmas was carefully selected as a nominee by a national panel of amusement & theme park experts, USA TODAY 10Best editors and prestigious influencers from across the country.”
A five-time winner of USA TODAY’s Best Theme Park Holiday Event, Silver Dollar City’s An Old Time Christmas has grown to shine over 6.5 million LED lights, lining nearly every board on every building at the park. Just in the park’s Christmas in Midtown display alone — The City’s most concentrated light display — illumination fills 70,000 square feet with 145 miles of lights, a total of 1.5 million lights! And, new for 2023, the theme park’s two-story canopy sky is filled with a towering bell display, gleaming bright red and gold.
Included with park admission, many of the park’s award-winning rides and attractions run at night, under the glow of the millions of lights and Ozark Mountain stars. The festival also includes two Broadway-style shows, a sing along steam train, festive saloon show, additional kid-focused entertainment and hand-crafted Christmas heirlooms created by The City’s demonstrating crafts colony 100-strong.
The park’s restaurants and eateries change their offerings, too, with wassail, hot chocolate and warm apple cider served in various locations, along with holiday buffet options to choose from, including Prime Rib and a traditional turkey with dressing dinner.
“This is the liveliest and brightest Christmas season ever at Silver Dollar City,” said Brad Thomas, president of the Silver Dollar City Company. “And, while we know how special this event has become for generations of our guests, we hope to have your help in winning this prestigious title a sixth-time. Please vote every day, on every device, through the rest of this month!”
An Old Time Christmas presented by Humana rings in the holiday season Nov. 4 – Dec. 30.
