Branson Announces Initiative to Stretch Family Vacation Dollars via Economic Stimulus Program
Doubles Ways to Cash In with Free Show Tickets
Branson, Missouri, wants people to have fun with their economic stimulus check by vacationing in "The Live Music Show Capital of the World." A new, innovative Branson promotion offers visitors two free show tickets just for bringing a copy of their stimulus check, or proof of direct deposit, to Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce. Since only a copy is required, the checks can still be cashed by some national stores to take advantage of their stimulus plan promotions; thus check recipients have two ways to "cash in" for each tax rebate check.
Shows participating in this promotion include 50's at the Hop, Yakov Smirnoff, Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theatre, The Happy Trails Theater featuring Roy Rogers, Jr., The Baldknobbers, Buck Trent, Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, Kirby VanBurch, Grand Country, Jim Stafford, New Shanghai Circus, The Shepherd of the Hills, Magnificent Seven, The Duttons, Island Fire, Hamner Barber Variety Show and many more. For a complete list of shows offering two free tickets and the complete promotion guidelines, you may check out the website at www.explorebranson.com/stimuluscheck.
"Branson is furthering national retail value-added programs, such as those announced by Sears, Lowes and K-Mart, by adding activity and entertainment to a family vacation at no additional cost," said Ross Summers, President/CEO, Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau.
While in Branson, you can enjoy more than 100 live shows offering a variety of Pop, Patriotic, Rock 'n' Roll, Gospel, Motown, Big Band, Irish and Country music, as well as Broadway-style productions, magic, comedy, and acrobatics. There are shows that feature the songs and dances of the '50s, '60s and '70s, and shows that pay tribute to legendary performers such as Red Skelton, Elvis, the Eagles and even The Beatles. Your family will also enjoy the many wonderful attractions in Branson and its close proximity to three pristine lakes with lush, scenic mountain vistas all around. Add to that the newest shoppers' paradise at Branson Landing, Celebration City's brand-new $2 million "Roaring Falls" ride, and the elegant European-style Spa Chateau and you'll find something fun for everyone.
