Adoration Celebration and Parade

This year’s parade is the 69th Annual and will take place on Sunday, December 3, 2017. It starts with the annual lighting of the largest area nativity scene, overlooking Lake Taneycomo at dusk and culminating with a community gathering like no other: the Adoration Parade.


If you’ve ever asked yourself the question, “What happened to Christmas?” this inspirational community event is the answer you’ve been seeking. The Branson community gathers on this special day to set aside our individual

aspirations and celebrate the true meaning of the Christmas season. It is our chance to stop and reflect on the beauty of the Christmas story that still inspires people today. On this special night, no one is in the limelight and no organization is promoted, only an overwhelming outpouring of community and celebration as we come together to honor the story of Christmas.

As you plan for this year’s Christmas season, don’t miss the opportunity to enter your organization in the 69th Annual Adoration Celebration & Parade. Branson’s Ozark Mountain Christmas Season begins with the lighting of the nativity scene and we want you and your organization to be a part of this timeless tradition.
