Busch Gardens to celebrate the season with holiday shows and Santa

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is gearing up for another holiday season filled with special shows and decorations. Holidays at Busch Gardens will include live performances, themed breakfasts and a New Years Eve celebration.

“Christmas on Ice”, an ice-skating show with a holiday theme, will delight guests from Nov. 19 until Jan. 1, 2012 in the Moroccan Palace.

At the nearby Marrakesh Theater, enjoy “Christmas from the Heart”, featuring holiday gospel and spiritual songs performed by a live choir.

“Christmas Celebration”, inside the Desert Grill, is a musical show with seasonal songs and tap-dancing toy soldiers.

A holiday character breakfast with Santa and his elves will take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 3 and 10. The breakfast includes visits with Santa, a performance of “Christmas Celebration”, and a commemorative family photo. Prices are $18 for adults and $12 for children.

Inside the park guests will also find festive décor, classic music and a cappella carols by the Men of Note.

The park will have extended hours on New Year’s Eve to help guests ring in the New Year. The band None Other will play in Gwazi Park throughout the evening. A special midnight fireworks show will help guests say goodbye to 2011 with a bang.
