Walking Around: Christmas Town 2017 at Busch Gardens Tampa

As the big day quickly approaches, Christmas Town 2017 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is now in full swing, operating nightly through the end of the year.

Over a million lights are hung on buildings, trees and railings in nearly every corner of the park. The huge displays show the park in a whole new way after dark.

With such impressively large displays of decor and lights, it’s easy to miss some of the details. Take some time to really look and see what else catches your eye when you look closer.

Rudolph and some of his friends are once again meeting guests for photos. This year, Sam the Snowman has joined the crew.

The popular Christmas on Ice has also returned this season. Favorite holiday tunes and world-class skating make for a wonderful show.

There are also several other seasonal shows around the park, like Christmas Celebration in Dragon Fire Grill which features singing and dancing, and Christmas from the Heart which also features a live band.

Gift shops and games also show off the holiday spirit, with a variety of souvenirs available for every taste.
