Happy New Year - Celebrating the Year of the Sheep at Busch Gardens

Happy New Year to All!

You may wonder why I am wishing you all a Happy New Year, well last Thursday marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year.

It is said that all of the animals were asked to meet on New Year’s Day to celebrate and only 12 animals arrived for the celebration. To reward all of the animals that did show up, a year was named after each animal.

Here on the parks' blog, we featured a lot of fantastic posts about the behind-the-scenes goings on of the park.
