Reunions are a big part of Branson, Missouri. Each years hundreds of Families converge on Branson for special reunions. So it is only fitting that Discover Santa 2016 also be the “official reunion” for the Kringle Family.
Coca Cola is our presenting Sponsor and The Grand Village Shops, Kringles and Mel’s Hard Luck Diner are our official hosts. This event is a wonderful time for everyone to meet and get aquainted. Coca- Cola and Mel’s Hard Luck Diner will be providing snacks and refreshments and there will be opportunities to win wonderful prizes from Kringles Christmas Store and other merchants.
Highlighting this venue, for our reunion, is Kringles, the largest Christmas Store in Missouri. Located at the entrance to the Grand Village Shops, this is the site of the original Discover Santa Parade in 2006. Kringles has been a great supporter of Santas for many, many years.
All registered attendees, convention vendors and sponsors are invited to this afternoon reception. There will be food, and refreshments, drawings for fantastic prizes, and live entertainment.
With it’s many quaint brick and garden lined paths,the Grand Village Shoppes are one of the most popular shopping venues in Branson. And along with Kringles, you will also find over forty other merchants at the Grand Village Shops. So it will also be a great time to do a little shopping.
