Busch Gardens Tampa brings the holidays to life with special shows and decorations throughout the park.  Holidays at Busch Gardens includes live performances, themed breakfasts and a New Year’s Eve Celebration.

The Moroccan Palace Theater hosts “Christmas on Ice”, an ice-skating show with a holiday theme, from November 19 through January 1, 2012.  The  Marrakesh Theater features “Christmas from the Heart,” a production infused with holiday gospel and spiritual songs performed by a live choir. Tap dancing soldiers and seasonal songs can be found at the Desert Grill’s “Christmas Celebration,” while guests can also enjoy a holiday character breakfast with Santa and his elves on December 3 and 10, from 8:30am-10:30am.  The breakfast includes visits with Santa, a performance of “Christmas Celebration,” and family photo.  The breakfast event is not included with Busch Gardens tickets and does require a separate admission, with adults $18 and children $12.

Busch Gardens hosts the band None Other for New Year’s Eve, with the park also having extended hours on New Year’s Eve and a special midnight fireworks show.
