Busch Gardens Summer Nights

Busch Gardens Tampa announced a couple of weeks ago that they were  kicking off their firework and special effects production, "Spark! A Nighttime Spectacular" starting on May 28.

It has now been announced that due to popular demand, “Spark! A Nighttime Spectacular” will be shown every night starting Friday June 11, through Sunday August 8. It will then go back to being shown on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (as well as Labor Day) until September 6, although it seems likely that if there is still the demand during August Busch Gardens may make the decision to continue with the nightly display.

"As the biggest and brightest show ever to light the park’s sky, “Spark!” features an explosive array of fireworks and exciting effects from dazzling lasers to graceful water elements and dramatic pyrotechnics. From the electrifying pre-party to the epic grand finale."
