Keep the spirit of the season going this year at Busch Gardens Tampa’s Christmas Town. The park recently extended the dates to this year’s event, now giving guests even more time to experience the Christmas Town Village and its millions of twinkling lights, as well as holiday shows, treats and more. Step into the spirit of the season at Christmas Town each day through January 6.
Christmas Town evokes the holiday spirit each and every night with Christmas favorites including Santa’s House, beloved characters from the television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer; Yuletide shows like the ice skating show Christmas on Ice, the contemporary Christian gospel celebration Christmas From the Heart, Elmo’s Christmas Wish and others, the choreographed Christmas light show Carol of the Bells and others; holiday treats and much more.
There will be even more time to explore the holiday festivities as we get closer to New Year’s Eve. Christmas Town features extended hours on weekends and select dates and more experiences, including an all-new holiday show, visits to Rudolph’s Winter Wonderland, a new Dine with Santa buffet at Serengeti Overlook Restaurant and nighttime rides on Florida’s best thrill attractions.
Then, on New Year’s Eve, guests can say farewell to 2018 with extended park hours, live entertainment and fireworks that that take over the night sky beginning at midnight.
The holiday merriment continues into 2019 with the Three Kings Celebration on January 5 & 6. This seasonal cultural event celebrates the Latin culture and unfolds the famed journey to Bethlehem. The celebration includes Latin traditions, including authentic foods eaten during the holidays; live entertainment honoring the three Wise Men, and Busch Gardens’ display of twinkling lights.
