Don’t be alarmed if you hear loud pops at night this summer.
Busch Gardens will begin its Summer Nights fireworks display today (June 9). The nightly entertainment runs through Aug. 12.
Busch Gardens has run its Summer Nights event for years, but this is the first year the fireworks finale will happen every night. The event also features extended hours, a Latin-infused show at the Desert Grill, special entertainment and DJs, according to a Busch Gardens press release.
Additionally, Adventure Island will celebrate Island Nights every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, 5-9 p.m., June 14-Aug. 11. The water park will transform into “an island of fun in the sun,” according to the release. There will be live music, entertainment, tropical wildlife, island-inspired cuisine, dancing and games on the beach, street performers, stilt walkers and a steel drum band.
