Christmas shines brightest with more than eight million lights

See what's happening at Christmas Town

Christmas shines brightest at Busch Gardens ® Christmas Town ™ in Williamsburg, Virginia. The world’s most beautiful theme park is aglow with over 8 million Christmas lights, making it the largest Christmas light display in North America. Festive food and drink, holiday shopping and heart-warming shows make the spirit of Christmas come alive.

With many of our park rides and attractions still open during this Christmas event, adults and children of all ages can join in the festivities. Enjoy kid-friendly (or KIDsiderate ®, as we like to say) areas, thrill rides, merry entertainment and dining options. Stay warm with a mug of the park’s signature peppermint fudge hot chocolate as world-champion figure skater Elvis Stojko brings the magic of Christmas to life on ice in ‘Twas that Night . Meet Santa Claus in the North Pole and capture an unforgettable memory with a Christmas photo. Most of all, enjoy this most wonderful time of year with friends and family.
