Opening Night in Branson Dixie Stampede Style
Pointe Royale Properties, Inc.
The 2011 Branson Show Season has now officially opened!
A near capacity crowd was on hand last Friday evening for the opening performance of the Dixie Stampede.
We have been to many performances at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede and have enjoyed them all. This past Friday we were fortunate to attend this opening performance with our 2 yr granddaughter, Riley.
She was all dressed up for this special opening event. Riley was really excited to be going to the Dixie Stampede. On the short drive to the theater she kept repeating Dixie Stampede, Dixie Stampede, Dixie Stampede. From the parking area to the lobby you must pass all the horse stalls. Many of the horses were in the stalls ready to perform and as we passed each stall she would call out horsey, horsey, big horsey. She was excited, to say the least.
This was going to be really something different for us to watch the excitement and enthusiasm of a 2yr old enjoy the show. She clapped, tried to stomp her feet and danced to the music through out the performance.
You bring your own utensils; your fingers. So it’s just right for a two year old. She had plenty to eat and with the help of a horsey bag we had some left over’s the next day.
The show has lots of action from start to finish, never a dull moment. Lots of changes have been made from the previous years show, adding to the fun. At the conclusion we were able to approach one of the riders as she postioned her horse along side the arena and she allowed us to pet her horse Gator. What a treat for any child.
Dixie Stampede is a show for all ages, it is a family show. As I looked around the area that night everyone young and old was having such a great time. For us, it was a super evening as we enjoyed The Dixie Stampede through the eyes of our granddaughter.
A trip to Branson is not complete without The Dixie Stampede as part of your itinerary. You might just find that 2yr old inside you having a wonderful time. We can help plan your trip to Branson, Pointe Royale and the Dixie Stampede.
