Busch Gardens is getting its guests into the holiday spirit early this year by offering Christmas vacation packages in July. Early bird tickets are now on sale for the 2nd annual Christmas Town open on select nights Nov. 29 through Dec. 23. Busch Gardens announced last week on its website that this years event will be triple the size of Christmas Town 2012 and with 15,000 sq. ft. of wintery surprises it’s one of the largest holiday attractions in the Tampa Bay area.

“When Christmas Town opened last year, it quickly became a unique holiday tradition for Tampa Bay area families,” says Jim Dean, Busch Gardens park president. “This year, we’re bringing back all of our guests’ favorites, including Santa’s House, Penguin Point and SnowWorld Presented by Coca-Cola. Special entertainment, live music, festive treats, nighttime rides and thousands of twinkling Christmas lights are among the things that guests can expect to find at Busch Gardens new holiday attraction.
