Tampa, Fla. (Nov. 4, 2015) – The family tradition continues this holiday season at Christmas Town™, where Busch Gardens® Tampa transforms into a holiday wonderland of entertainment, attractions, shopping and more than a million twinkling lights.

The popular event takes place on 20 select dates from Nov. 27 to Dec. 31, with fan-favorite entertainment and new twists such as:

NEW! 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.

NEW! 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.

NEW! 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.

We Three Kings Show: The We Three Kings Show returns to Christmas Town, telling the story of the famed journey of the Magi to Bethlehem. Set in the newly-located Three Kings Oasis, magical voices come together in harmony to Christmas music, paying tribute to the three Wise Men who followed the North Star in pursuit of baby Jesus.

Guests can also expect the return of 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.
