Archives for December 2008
It looks like it’s never to early to start promoting a Halloween event, which is fine by me. We just received this email from Busch Gardens Tampa:

The town of Celebration holds a holiday celebration each night during December call Now Snowing. The main event each night is the “snow” that falls on Market Street. First the street is covered with foam and the kids play, have snowball fights and make snow angels. Then on the hour from 6 to 9 p.m., the many snow machines blow foam all over the street.
Other activities include horse drawn carriage rides, a “train” ride, carolers and a chance to sit on Santa’s lap and take pictures.
The last night to see the snow is during Celebration’s New Year’s Eve party. The event will kick off with special acoustic performances by Robbie Carrico (American Idol Season 7 Finalist) and Johnny Bulford (Colgate County Music Showdown Challenge winner) followed by The Reflections Band and live music throughout the streets. As the clock strikes midnight you can catch the fireworks spectacular while standing in the final “snowfall” of the year.
The New Year’s Eve event is free and will also feature bounce houses and interactive games for kids. Now Snowing parking and admission are free. Celebration is located between Highway 192 and interstate 4 near Walt Disney World.
Santas from all over the world visited Aquatica to unwind before a busy night delivering presents. The Santas spent the day floating down a tranquil river next to black and white Commerson’s dolphins and enjoying the Florida sunshine.
Walt Disney World will premier a daily, live-entertainment event called the “Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It! Street Party” in the Magic Kingdom in February.
The event, combining a parade and a dance party, will begin at Town Square and move down Main Street USA to the rhythms of contemporary pop songs such as “Breakout” by Miley Cyrus. The parade will include floats, stilt walkers and Disney characters. Visitors will be encouraged to mix, mingle and dance in the street during the 12- to 15-minute party.
“This is the main idea of the show — to have the opportunity to play and dance with the characters,” Disney Entertainment Producer Gary Gutierrez explained in a note to passholders.
