Amana – Oh for cryin’ in the Egg Nog! The folks from Bunyan Bay are back in an all-new holiday show. Christmas Eve takes a strange turn as Gunner falls through the ice on his Skidoo and is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, in the form of folk singing legend Sven Yorgensen no less. Whether you are new to Bunyan Bay or you are visiting again, you’ll be laughing long after the fruitcake ferments.
