Hearts and Hopes of Heroes

Veterans Homecoming Week in Branson is an inspiring celebration of veterans and their families.  It’s an event filled with pride, patriotism, and heartfelt gratitude!

Hearts and Hopes of Heroes is a special youth tribute honoring all veterans.  Young people from around the country will come together to perform as part of a 300 person mass choir.

This multimedia presentation will highlight the life of veterans, the adventure of new experiences, shared hardship and triumph, the bonds of the family/team that takes it on and makes it all happen, and the families they miss at home.

This event is a moving homage to our nation’s warriors and a unique opportunity for today’s youth to spend time with them.  It’s a performance opportunity like no other!
