Are you looking for things to do with your kids during their winter break? Tully's How-To found some holiday-themed events you can check out that won't put a dent in your wallet.

The Florida Botanical Gardens is offering up a holiday lights display you can walk through. It is open every night from now until December 30 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. No admission will be charged but there is a suggested donation of $5.

Winter Village at Curtis Hixon Park is also a less expensive option. The market and cafe setups are free to browse through, and you can hit the ice rink with your family for $13 a person. This is also open every day and runs through January 5.

Another free event is in Largo, about a half hour drive from Tampa. The Holiday Stroll has over one million LED lights on display the entire month of December and your kids can even play in the snow if you go on December 16.

Good Morning Tampa Bay Meteorologist Greg Dee recently showed us the changes to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens. 

Your kids can meet and take pictures with Rudolph or see one of several holiday ice shows. Tickets are included with admission to the park. Days and times vary throughout the month, to see a full calendar click here.
