Trail of Lights and Christmas on the Trail

During the holiday season, the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead is transformed into a sparkling wonderland of holiday cheer. The Trail of Lights is a drive-thru light attraction, and Christmas on the Trail is a chuck wagon-style cowboy dinner and Christmas carol sing-a-long.

Very interesting to hear the story of how branson began. We also liked how they interwove some entertainment in with a historic tour. We highly recommend this one too.
