Busch Gardens Christmas Town returns early to Tampa Bay! Get ready for millions of holiday lights, a fireworks show, and a new Santa experience!
It’s beginning to look a lot like the holiday season in Tampa Bay. Busch Gardens is leading the way with the return of their legendary Christmas Town starting Friday, November 12th. Millions of lights will illuminate Busch Gardens 335 acres as you experience family-friendly shows, holiday-themed eats, and drinks, and finish off the night with a spectacular fireworks display.
One of the new shows this year is Santa’s North Pole Experience where his elves take you behind-the-scenes of the jolly bearded man’s holiday workshop. Christmas on Ice returns with world-class ice skaters performing to your favorite holiday songs.
Check out the video of what to expect:
It’s so cool to see the entire park decorated with holiday lights…especially when you see it from the top of the roller coasters. This truly is Tampa Bay’s biggest and brightest holiday event.
What’s nice about Christmas Town is that it’s already included in your regular admission ticket. This holiday extravaganza goes from November 12 thru January 2nd at Busch Gardens. Time to get festive and this looks like a great place to start!
