This year, the Opening Ceremony is also returning. “Vets for Vets” will be performed on November 5. The show will include tap dancers, singers, musicians, comedians and even a 12-piece orchestra. An upbeat show, the finale will feature “Dancing in the Streets.”
A special Branson Veterans Day Parade is also planned. Scheduled for November 11 in downtown Branson, the parade is a long standing tradition that is an inherent part of the way Branson honors Veterans, active duty Military personnel and their families.
