The holiday season is upon us and Busch Gardens Tampa is celebrating the spirit of the season with the return of several holiday classics.

Starting November 21, the Stanleyville Theater at Busch Gardens will present “Christmas on Ice,” a limited engagement show featuring a cast of professional skaters in a magnificent winter wonderland. At the Marrakesh Theater “Christmas from the Heart” will be performed, which is a show filled with inspiring holiday gospel and spiritual songs performed by a live choir.
Guests can also choose to have breakfast with Santa and his merry elves on select mornings in December. Enjoy some exciting and unforgettable photo opportunities with Santa as well as his holiday elves followed by a fabulous performance of the traditional family favorite, “Christmas Celebration.” This fun-filled experience begins at 8:30 am in the Desert Grill. Adult admission is $20 and child admission is $14.

The rest of Busch Gardens is bedecked in holiday splendor featuring strolling carolers, Christmas characters and classic holiday music.
