This holiday season shines at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay! Hey Tampa, its Melissa dropping by to tell you guys about all the spectacular events Busch Gardens has this holiday season.

They will be bringing back holiday favorites like Christmas on Ice, Christmas from the Heart and Christmas Celebration. All of them bring something a little different to the Christmas table, but they all have one thing in common-they are sure to get you in the holiday mood.

Christmas on Ice is a limited engagement with a cast of professional skaters that do such a great job of bringing a winter wonderland to life you may forget you are in Florida. Christmas from the Heart will feature holiday gospel songs performed by a live choir. Christmas Celebration will also feature seasonal songs and tap-dancing soldiers that deliver on family fun.

On select Saturdays (December 11th and 18th) you are invited to join Santa and his elves for a breakfast at Busch Gardens’ Desert Grill and are able to commemorate the joyous moment with a family photo and a private performance of the Christmas Celebration.

You don’t have to be only at these events to feel the magic of the holidays either; the whole park will be transformed into a holiday wonderland with carolers, Christmas characters, decorations and more.

Finally, you will be able to ring in the New Year at Busch Gardens with a wild concert featuring the Guess Who at 10:30pm, followed by fireworks.

Busch Gardens is definitely where it’s at (pardon my grammar, it sounded cool) this holiday season. There seems to be a little something for everybody so bring your family, friends or whoever and get out to Busch Gardens this season, you won’t regret it.
