We’re going to let you in on a Branson secret: Black Friday shopping is easier when you park the car and ride Sparky, the free Downtown Branson trolley. The comfortable trolleys operate all day long throughout downtown, and there’s room for you and your shopping bags. And did we mention that it’s free?
Many thousands of people come to Branson each year for Black Friday deals, and the city’s highest concentration of shopping in town is in Downtown Branson, which includes the dozens of unique shops in Historic Downtown Branson and more than 100 stores at Branson Landing.
The Branson Trolleys don’t run on Thanksgiving Day, but begin their routes at 9 a.m. on Black Friday. The trolleys run until 6 p.m. on Friday (See a detailed map of the trolley stops). You also can find the nearest trolley in real-time using our GPS Sparky Spotter.
