I was so excited to go on a mini excursion to celebrate my favorite season of all! I went to visit the inaugural Pumpkin Nights at Silver Dollar City Amusement Park in Branson, MO this past weekend.
Branson is a quick three hour drive from where I live and I have lots of fun and fond memories going to Silver Dollar City with my family growing up. It was always a summer vacation spot for us, but I’ve never been to visit this late in the year. The last time I was there was in the summer when I had to have been about 11 or 12 years old.
Let me tell you something though about this trip – the fall foliage driving through the Ozarks this time of year is absolutely magical. I was having an equally fun time soaking in all of the colors of the leaves as I did enjoying the masterfully carved pumpkins in the theme park.
If you would like to take a look at what the first ever Pumpkin Nights is like, keep on reading to see lots of photos!
