IllumiNites in Ireland, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia

As part of its new IllumiNites program this summer, Busch Gardens Williamsburg featured several shows and fireworks each night.
In Ireland, the story focused on a love-sick leprechaun whose fairy girlfriend disappeared with his pot of gold. Despite the intervention of a witch looking for a date and heckling by a trio of farm animals, he was able to join forces with a couple of audience members to find his magic and win back his love and his gold.  It was quite fun and really captured the attention of the children in the audience.

IllumiNites with it's many new shows and fireworks every night, is now over for the season, but we sure do hope it returns next year. It was a wonderful addition to the park!

I would love to visit Busch Gardens sometime "in season" so that I may see more shows. We have visited the gardens twice, both times during the Easter break. The IllumiNites program looks fantastic. I hope it returns too. By the way I started a series of blogs about our visit to Genesee Country Village & Museum in NY. The village reminds me so much of Colonial Williamsburg. I believe Colonial Williamsburg features buildings from one time period, whereas Genesee Country Village features buildings from three time periods.
