Christmas shines brightest with more than eight million lights

Check back later for 2017 event details

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

Enjoy two kid-friendly (or KIDsiderate ®, as we like to say) areas, an assortment of thrill rides including InvadR™ and Verbolten ®, 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 . Visit Santa at his North Pole workshop and capture an unforgettable memory. Most of all, enjoy this most wonderful time of year with friends and family.
