November 9, 2016 | Paul K. Logsdon


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel University Marching Band will perform again this year at Silver Dollar City on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 9 p.m.

The Marching Band, directed by Matt Moore, will lead the 9 p.m. Holly JollyTM Christmas Light Parade, featuring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, with nine floats and 33 costumed characters.

“I can’t think of a better way to close the marching season than beneath five million Christmas lights,” said Moore. “There is just something special about Silver Dollar City that cannot be matched, especially at this time of year.”

The EU students will perform “Santa’s Parade” as they march.

This event is open to the public and requires the cost of admission into Silver Dollar City.
