Celebrate The Holiday Season At Busch Gardens Christmas Town Starting November 12

JAMES CITY-Busch Gardens Christmas Town is gearing up for the new season with new experiences for guests. The theme park released its Christmas Town itinerary on October 26. The fun begins on Friday, November 12.

Christmas Town will feature more than 10 million dazzling lights, making it one of the largest holiday displays in the nation. Christmas Town will also include several new shows and other happenings.

New this year, the popular Busch Gardens show Celtic Fyre will be featured as part of the Christmas Town experience at Abbey Stone Theatre. The show will add a Christmas flair to its Killarney classic performance.  Other new shows include Up on the Haus Top, a festive performance in Das Festhaus, and Unto Us, a choral performance celebrating the first Christmas, which will run outdoors at Il Teatro di San Marco Theatre.

Other new Christmas Town highlights include a holiday scavenger hunt and the North Pole Nightcap Bar featuring specialty holiday cocktails. Returning favorites include Santa’s Workshop, the Christmas Express, and the ‘Twas that Night ice skating show with figure skater champion Elvis Stojko.  Busch Gardens Christmas Town is also bringing back performances of Elmo’s Christmas Wish, O’Tannenbaum, and Scrooge No More.
