The night the dead wake is the same night children and parents roam the streets of Missouri after a gorgeous autumn day around the vibrant Ozark Mountains. A Halloween weekend vacation in Branson during the vibrant fall season is both a splendid and spooky experience. By day, you can cruise the lakes, fly through the skies aboard a plane or ride a train to feast your eyes upon the radiant foliage. At night, you can wander the streets and get inside theaters, attractions and malls in a scary costume to ask for Halloween candies, watch creepy shows, visit haunted houses and join trick or treat games. So get away from the occasional horror movie marathon, bloodcurdling storytelling and hide and seek and take your whole family to a 3-day Halloween vacation to Branson.
The night of the living dead is on its way! The night before Halloween instead of gathering up around the cozy living room of your Branson cabin at the Grand Mountain you can head for a 2 hour Halloween walk at Hollister's Boo Bash. As lovely as it is to watch scary movies on cable channels and DVD's while huddled in a queen sized sleeper sofa under the warmth of a gas fireplace, nothing beats a real Halloween experience. Have your face painted and dress up in a costume so unique you'd beat the whole crowd at the search for the ugliest, prettiest, scariest and funniest getup. Your whole family can also join a haunted hayride through the forest or sign up for Truck and Treat or Goody Walk where your kids can delight in asking for Halloween treats from decorated trucks company booths.
Another must see during your Halloween vacation in Branson during the beautiful fall season is the Boonanza held at Branson Hills. From 5:30 to 7:30 pm the air will be filled with the delicious aroma of cotton candies, hot chocolates and apple pies while you take part in haunted hayrides, pumpkin carving and corn maze.
Ozark shopping at the Branson Landing during Halloween is an enjoyable spooky event. Try shopping from 5pm to 7 pm and you'll be amazed at how the stores are decorated to celebrate the Annual family Safe Street Trick or Treat. Employees will also be handing out sweets so be sure to take your children with you. Other outlet malls such as the Tanger Outlet, Branson factory Merchants and the Shoppes at Branson Meadows will also be hosting Halloween trick or treat activities that invites you for some scary fun.
While in a vacation in Branson during Halloween don't forget to visit Branson Haunted Scream Park where you'll not only scream but shriek at the petrifying eerie attractions such as Bitten, Terror Tales, Clinically Dead and a maze of Mirrors. There's also the Branson haunted house and Asylum where you can mingle with ghost, goblins, pirates and princesses.
If you drive a bit and head north, the Dickerson Park Zoo offers a spooktacular experience with ghost and ghouls on lighted pathways yet this experience can also be sweet as the zoo will provide your kids with costumes and candy treats. What's a Halloween without the pumpkin? At McKenna's Pumpkin Patch your kids will have fun all day. The pumpkins at the farm grow big during the fall pumpkin carving is more than fun.
For three days during Halloween, you could be stuck with repetitive horror stories or old movies. But why endure a 3 day boredom when you can go for a Halloween vacation in Branson and be entertained from sunup to sundown. Enjoy looking at the spectacular foliage all day and when dusk creeps in, head to the malls, attractions and streets for a bizarre autumn Halloween experience.
