Christmas countdown: less than a week. With Dec 25 around the corner, and exams filling up everyone’s schedule, it may be difficult to get into the Christmas spirit. However, there’s nothing some Christmas lights can’t fix.

There are several places in Pinellas County that students can visit for free to experience some holiday festivities.

Largo’s Central Park has 70 acres of land decorated in a display of one million LED lights. Entry is free at the park, but the Botanical Gardens requires a four dollar donation fee. There are ferris wheel and carousel rides that are five dollars each. Concession stands are found in the park as well. These lights can be seen from now until December 31.

Indian Trails is a neighborhood in Palm Harbor well known for extravagant Christmas decorations on houses. Anyone can drive through this neighborhood and see the lights and inflatables on each house.

Oakdale mega light display in St. Petersburg has been featured on HGTV’s “All About Christmas” show. The display has ten semi trailer truck-loads of lights. This can be seen until January 3.

If students have a Busch Gardens Fun Card, or want to purchase one, they can experience the holiday season at the Tampa theme park, a little out of Pinellas County.

Busch Gardens Christmas Town featuring Rudolph and friends is occuring from now until Dec 31. The theme park is covered in lights and Christmas music is constantly playing. They have Christmas shows, characters such as Rudolph and Santa, and a Christmas marketplace.

It is not too late to get into the spirit. Put on the Christmas sweaters and socks and visit some light displays.
