With 6.5 million Christmas lights, Silver Dollar City takes the award for the ultimate Christmas lights show experience. Located in Branson, Missouri, Silver Dollar City attracts thousands of visitors every Christmas season not only for the riveting rides and live shows, but also for the spectacular display of Christmas trees, wreaths, and miles of ribbon and garland spread throughout the park.

Just like the American flag gives its citizens a sense of loyalty and pride for their country, so is the hope for the Spartan Tartan, that when students and faculty see it around campus, they understand it is more than just a pattern, but rather it makes them feel like they belong to a community that is dedicated to education and centered around Christ.
