TAMPA BAY, FL
Disney World's 50th Anniversary in 2021 is getting plenty of attention, but there’s another Florida theme park readying for an even bigger anniversary. Busch Gardens Tampa will be celebrating its 60th anniversary next month.
The diamond anniversary will be celebrated all year long at the African-themed Tampa park.
March 1 will kick off the celebration with a special Florida Orchestra concert celebrating the women who forever changed rock-n-roll. After the concert, there will be a celebratory firework display.
A brand-new Pin Trading Program, similar to the one SeaWorld Orlando launched last year, will also debut on March 1. Merchandise locations throughout the park will have the pins for sale, and park ambassadors will have unique pins not available for sale that can be traded for.
SeaWorld's pin trading program was launched last year to mixed reviews, but the pin designs have received nearly universal praise. Expect many of the same great designs to make their way to Busch Gardens as part of the over 150 unique pins that will begin the Pin Trading program. More pins will be added in the coming months.
