Dozens of protesters and counterprotesters gathered Sunday afternoon in Branson ahead of a Black Lives Matter march throughout the city.

The protest stretched several hours, starting with a demonstration at Branson Dixie Outfitters, located at 1819 W 76 Country Blvd. A group of protesters, several holding signs and wearing face masks, marched around 5 p.m.

Protesters marched from the Dixie Outfitters store to North Beach Park, near The Branson Landing, and back.

Several marches, protests and demonstrations have been organized around the Ozarks, including Branson, in recent weeks over racial injustice. Demonstrations nationwide have happened in response to the death of George Floyd in late May.
