FEATURE: EDD AKERS

In April 2019, Branson Missouri elected a new Mayor.  In this interview, we get to know Mayor Edd Akers.  We discuss the future of Branson, the importance of our live shows, new attractions, and community members working together to insure a prosperous future. 

We learn:

Edd was delivered in the back of the family store by a doctor that arrived by horseback. 

His feelings about the number of shows in Branson. 

How he briefly ran Silver Dollar City. 

Just who that strange man, sitting in a lawn chair with minnows nipping at his legs in the creek, actually is. 

Enjoy this fun interview with Mayor Edd Akers.

Edd Akers was born in Stone County and moved to Branson at age 4. Akers has served on a variety of boards in the community, including serving as president of Branson School Board, chairman of Cox Medical Center Branson, chairman of Taney County Planning & Zoning, chair of Taney County Board of Adjustment, and chairman of Branson/Lakes Area Tourism Community Enhancement District among others.

FEATURE: CRAIG WESCOTT

Craig Wescott transformed the Branson skyline in 2016.

Wescott, the CEO and co-owner of The Track Family Fun Parks, relocated Chicago’s famed Navy Pier Ferris wheel to the Branson Missouri. Now he has his sights set on another new attraction for the 76 strip in 2019.

Wescott paid almost $2 million for the ferris wheel, but invested $4 million in the total experience when all was said and done. Decorated with 16,000 LED lights the Branson Ferris Wheel has become a Branson landmark and popular destination for tourists.  

In this interview, we discuss Craig's upbringing and his path to being owning some of Branson's top attractions.
