Downtown Aglow at Night

While you’re downtown to shop, dine and explore, take in the dazzling lights all over downtown!

Numerous businesses have fantastic displays, and you’ll see 102 impressive custom fixtures (more than 100,000 LED lights) that glow south of Business 65 along Main, Commercial, and Sycamore Streets. And don’t miss Liberty Plaza, which has the Chiefs Kingdom Ozark Mountain Christmas Tree.

From Main Street in downtown, you can look on the hill across Lake Taneycomo to see Branson’s oldest Christmas tradition since 1949, the “Adoration” nativity scene. The scene will be lit nightly after the first Sunday in December.
