Got out Friday and started to explore Branson. We parked in Bass Pro Shop lot as it is a pickup point for the free trolley. After a brief walk about in Bass Pro, we hit the outdoor downtown mall area.
There is a nice walkway along Lake Taneycomo. Lake Taneycomo looks more river than lake, 22 miles long and narrow but as there is a dam at both ends it is a lake. We watched the free water fountain show at noon. This must look cool at night with the flames in the background.
Friday night we enjoyed a nice fire with neighbors and new friends Joe and Angie. They are here training to be Escapee campground volunteers.
On Saturday they were having a Grape and Fall Fest in Hollister. It was only about a mile away so off we go. They had a full slate of entertainment, food and the feature event the famous grape stomp. No we didn't get to stomp:(.
We mostly enjoyed the free stage entertainment many of the acts were doing shows in the area. We got some nice 1/2 hour snips of some good motown singing, a funny impersonator, and the highlight was a performance by SIX. The group is six brothers singing acapella, they sound like they almost have instruments playing along.
The night finished with a good local country rock band called Midnight Traveler.
