ChristmasTown 2017 review

This years ChristmasTown at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, as usual, did not disappoint! I will go event by event with my thoughts.

Santa’s Workshop

Santa’s Workshop moved this year to the Darkastle location.  It is much bigger and just beautiful.  You really get the feeling you are walking through Santa’s workshop, with elves along the way to answer questions and even keep the children entertained while waiting in line.  You can see our interview with Santa at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

Gift of Harmony

ChristmasTown’s newest  show is an accapella experience, located in the San Marco Theater in Italy.  The music was awesome, fun, and I have to give props to their beat boxer, who killed it.  All around great cast and vocal experience!

Gloria

Always a beautiful show with a mix of gospel and and classic Christmas hymnals, with a bit of jazz fusion in the Abbey Stone Theater.  Having a live orchestra really makes the show more full.  Powerful vocals make for an awe inspiring performance.

Deck the Halls

A traditional show with classic Christmas songs, is fun and great for dinner in the Festhaus.  Again, BGW brings in the live band to give it that full sound.

Twas that Night

The third year for this amazing ice show did what it always does, amaze!  An awesome cast led by Olympic medalist and world champion figure skater, Elvis Stojko, called for ooohs and ahhhs from the audience throughout the entire performance.  A great show and a must to take the kids.  You can see our 2016 interview with Elvis below.

Scrooge No More

Easily my favorite show that BGW has ever done, no matter the season!  The visuals, the cast, the music and design bring an amazing version of A Christmas Carol to The Globe Theater.  There are not enough words in my vocabulary to describe how much I love this show, and if I weren’t able to spend a whole day at ChristmasTown, I would go just for this show.

Rudolph Experience

My sons and I got to visit with some of the characters from the classic Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer claymation.   It is a blast to get to see life sized versions of the childhood favorites.

All in all, 2017 ChristmasTown was a great experience that just gets better every year!  See you all in the Spring, until then…

BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER!
