Christmas Town returning to Busch Gardens Tampa with new and old traditions


Christmas Town is once again returning to Busch Gardens Tampa this year with even more family fun for everyone to enjoy this holiday season.

This year, the park is introducing some new festivities for the whole family to enjoy.  These include:

Holiday Hills Band: Putting a twist on traditional brass band-style music, the Holiday Hills Band brings a classic Christmas to life. Set in the vintage town of Holiday Hills, now located in Gwazi Plaza, this musical ensemble embodies the true merriment of the season.

Christmas Time Tree Show: Every 10 minutes, a l50-foot Christmas tree comes alive with spectacular dancing lights. The brand-new light show is set in the nature-inspired area of Christmas Time Terrace and is the perfect place for this year’s family photo.

Extended Hours: Christmas Town is now open until 10 p.m. on select dates, allowing families more time to marvel at Busch Gardens’ beautifully lit holiday landscape and special Yuletide experiences. Christmas Town will close at 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The We Three Kings Show returns to Christmas Town, telling the story of the famed journey of the Magi to Bethlehem.

Santa’s House presented by Coca-Cola and fan-favorite shows that ring in the season, including Christmas on Ice and the Carol of the Bells light show will also be returning.

Christmas Town is included with any annual pass, Fun Card or daily admission to the park.

Christmas Town takes places on 20 select dates from Nov. 27 to Dec. 31
