Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
We absolutely loved the show! This was our second time back and i think this one was the best. It is hard to say which is our favorite part. I must say the american indian section especially the flying eagle was so breathtaking. I think i literally held my breath the entire time she was flying, she was so graceful. My husband said he loved the pigs.....Lol it truly is amazing how you have worked so hard to get so many wagons and persons in that small space. Truly remarkable choreography on your part! Lastly, being a veteran your tribute to our country at the end with our flags and the lit up colors on the horses and the outfits of your personnel was simply beautiful. You have some fine singers and they were all energetic and were pleased to be providing us with a wonderful show. Of course lets not forget to mention our server samantha, she was awesome. She did a great job. A very sweet girl. Thanks again for making our vacation a wonderful and fun time! We hope to make the christmas show which we have heard is gorgeous. God bless you all.......

Hughes Brothers
These five brothers give their all in one of the most lively and varied productions i've ever seen. Flawless five-part harmonies grace almost every song, and their talented family members periodically join in for family fun. For dinner we were waited on by one of the brothers' adopted sisters adopted from russia. This teenager was a joy to get to know throughout the delicious dinner that she served us.
