Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
We have been to the one in branson 4 times and went to the one in tennessee once. The first time we went..... Shock!!! We laughed so hard, and clapped and stomped our feet. We had a blast!! The second time we took our daughter and her husband. They had just as much fun as we did the first time, and believe me we still loved it. The 3 time we came alone again... Just cant stay away. The 4 time we brought our other daughter, her husband and 2 children. They couldn't believe they could have so much fun and still get the kids to eat. The show in tennessee is the same as the one in branson. And the food is just as good. We are coming back this year!! Our son is going back to iraq and we feel this is the best show to bring him to before he goes!!! We have 3 military guys in our group this year, and i cant think of a better way to honor all 3!!!

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
This was by far the best activity we did as a family on our vacation to branson. Our boys, 3yrs and 6yrs, loved every minute of it. I was very surprised that it held our 3yr old's attention as well as it did, he was mesmerized. We almost skipped the pre-show but were so glad that we didn't because it was great! The food was good and the animals beautiful. The riders were skilled and great at what they do. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
