Thinking of ditching the post-meal cleanup this year and spending Thanksgiving or Christmas in the sunshine state? Or maybe you have family that recently purchased one of the beautiful KB Homes in Tampa and you’ve been invited for the family celebration. No matter what brings you to the sunny beaches and beautiful weather of Tampa, Florida you’ll find a wide array of activities to make your holiday’s merry and bright.
Busch Garden Christmas Town
Christmas Town at the world-famous Busch Gardens has been helping families celebrate the magic of the season for years. With lights, Rudolph, Santa Claus, and enough shows to please every member of the family this will become a family tradition you’ll want to repeat every year.
Enchanted Tree Lighting
Start your holiday season off with a party! The evening before Thanksgiving, The Enchanted Tree Lighting kicks off the celebrations at Hyde Park. This family friendly event features live performances, a street dance, and plenty of seasonal foods. Admission is complimentary and all drink purchases will go to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Thanksgiving Bluegrass Festival
This year marks the 37th Thanksgiving Bluegrass Festival at Sertoma Youth Ranch. The Sertoma Youth Ranch works to provide a rustic, outdoor experience for the youth of Florida. Their Thanksgiving celebration, with turkey provided by the ranch and side dishes by visitors, has been a destination point for families for decades. Come out and enjoy the music and make some new friends.
Yacht Starship Thanksgiving Cruise
Perhaps you’d like to sail away for the Thanksgiving holiday and leave all your worries behind for hour or two. If that’s what you’re looking for then the Yacht Starship Thanksgiving Cruise is the activity for you. Set sail from Tampa and enjoy a full course meal, sunshine, and gentle breezes from the Gulf waters.
