Silver Dollar City’s World-Fest Ending
22-Year Run, Going Out in Big Style
By Bob Lindsey
The concept of entertainers from multi cultures and countries didn’t seem quite fitting 22 years ago when Silver Dollar City first introduced park visitors to World-Fest. After 22 successful Spring seasons for World-Fest, the event still has two and half-more weeks before taking a final bow on May 1. Over the years, the event has been a successful addition.
A huge LED screen at one end of the Dixie Stampede arena projects gorgeous scenery of the
Ozarks and America, always changing. This is the patriotic salute near the end of the show.

I was a little hesitant about the latest restaurant of choice for the Dining Divas. First, they don’t take reservations. Second, every time I’ve driven by, there’s been a line outside the door. And finally, their specialty is fried chicken, and the last time we went to a place like that, I heard more complaints than compliments from the Divas. They couldn’t seem to be able to accept the restaurant’s chicken and sides’ prices compared to a place like KFC!

Director Dan Trachtenberg’s 10 Cloverfield Lane, a sequel in name only and perhaps it being the same alien invasion, provides entirely different thrills and chills than the original Cloverfield. Huge fans of the original Cloverfield’s handheld realism will be disappointed, but if handheld camera work causes queasiness, 10 Cloverfield Lane will delight — in a spine-chilling sort of way.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
