Also performing that night are The Wiede Family Band, Ron and Peggy Taylor and Bess Kelley and Friends.

If you don’t feel like cooking, you can also enjoy a Thanksgiving Day buffet  at the park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s a great way to enjoy the holiday, family, friends and being together without having to wash all those dishes. The park’s restaurant will serve you and yours turkey, dressing, and all the fixin’s.

The following night, Friday , Nov. 23, the Christmas season starts in earnest with a concert of all Holiday tunes at the large Music Auditorium. Showtime is 7 p.m. and features seasonal songs from Glad Hearts of the Ozarks, Bob Olivera, and Mulligan Stew.
