The Trail of Lights

The Trail of Lights is celebrating over 30 years as Branson’s longest running and favorite drive-thru! This attraction is filled with millions of multi-colored Christmas lights, and themed and animated displays, winding its way through the 160-acre Shepherd of the Hills Homestead. This year, join us in Cocoa for a Cause, donating to local charities.  Receive free hot cocoa after the lights and donate to local charities. 100% of donations will go to the charities. Come enjoy a Branson favorite Christmas tradition! Please note: The drive-thru is completely separate from the North Pole Adventure. Single axle vehicles only.


Sunday – Thursday: $25 per car load 

Friday – Saturday: $30 per car load 

$50 per van (vehicles with 8-15 riders)

We accept cash and/or credit card. Tickets can be purchased at gate. Please note: Purchasing a ticket online, does not allow you to skip the line.
