Jars of Clay planning residency at Busch Gardens' new Christmas Town




This fall, Busch Gardens will open Christmas Town, a new holiday-themed attraction and celebration that'll run from Thanksgiving right up until Christmas. As tbt*'s Susan Thurston reports, it'll have snow every night, plus appearances by Santa Claus.

But for music lovers, the most interesting part is this: Christian music superstars Jars of Clay will be the headlining entertainment every weekend of the event. From Nov. 30 to Dec. 23 -- that's four weekends in all -- they'll play concerts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The Grammy-winning group will play Christmas songs (probably, we're guessing from their 2007 album Christmas Songs) as well as old favorites, like their '90s crossover hit Flood.

Christmas Town and the concerts will be separate ticketed events, costing $29.99 in advance for adults and $9.99 for children ages 3 to 9. But through next Tuesday, premium pass holders can buy tickets for $9.99 each at Busch Gardens' Christmas Town Preview Center  online. Tickets the night of the event are $39.99 for adults and $14.99 for children.
