WORLDFEST - Around the World in 4 Weeks

by Brenda Nelson April. 10, 2010 4164 views

This morning, we took off for Silver Dollar City, a turn-of-the-century theme park in Branson, Missouri that attracts millions of travellers each year. It has been chosen second-only to the Disney Properties for quality and was recently featured in a TV special. During the spring, SDC holds a month-long event called “WorldFest”. They bring in acts and artistry from countries like Guatemala, Ecuador, Mexico, Russia, Argentina, Ireland, China, Trinidad/Tobago, Germany, and Scotland. The restaurants all serve
“Tastes of the World” - and the park is full of international colors and wonderful aromas!

Flags of the World at the entrance

Some of the various international merchandise that can be bought

We were SO far from the stage, they were constantly moving, and it was so dark (“no flash photography, please”), it was very difficult to get a clear shot!

This young woman is an incredible violinist, who played the violin while going up and down these sashes like a yo-yo!

The three “Fiery Fiddle” performers from Branson, Ireland and Nova Scotia

A display of painted Russion “Babushka” dolls

We ran into my friend Tricia Turner who was nice enough to take our picture!

Looks like a fun place! Climbing the sashes while playing the violin, you wrote Nana about that pretty girl? What a superwoman! That is almost too much from the talent category, don't you feel?

Very good circus acrobats despite your difficulty in taking them . They tend to make me tense when watching them act. TFS I like the Russian dolls shot.

It WAS a fun day. I really like #1 - that was an excellent perspective on those flags and the cutout of the world. Neat series!

Very interesting, and I agree, it sounds like fun.
I have one of the Russian babushka dolls at home. My mother bought it on a travel in Sovjet in the late 80's
Nice images!
