This week I went to Silver Dollar City’s National Harvest & Cowboy Festival and had a blast!
The park was decked out in bright and colorful autumn decor with gourds, pumpkins and a larger than life cornucopia basket at the entrance of the park. Craftsmen were lined up throughout the park displaying handcrafted goods like glassblown collectibles and home decor, original artwork, painted gourds and more.
Silver Dollar City is so festive during the fall season and a day filled with roller coasters is about the best thing you can ask for. The rides are as fun as ever during the fall, with Outlaw Run being a personal favorite of mine.
Of course, no visit to Silver Dollar City is complete without a warm, hearty skillet meal and a bowl of strawberries and cream. If you haven’t tried either one, you are seriously missing out.
Also featured at the National Harvest & Cowboy Festival is the popular Western Barn Dance, a cowboy poet and chuckwagon demonstrations, wild mustangs, boatloads of talented western and bluegrass musicians and this year is the final year for the Pinkerton Man Western Stunt Show so don’ t miss out!
Sadly, I was too busy riding the roller coasters all day to check out any of the shows but I’m planning on going back before October 25 when the fall festival ends.
