Viva la Musica 2015 – SeaWorld Orlando
Starting April 25th, SeaWorld is heating up with their annual festive fiesta, Viva la Música! You can get in on the fun every Saturday through May 16. Get ready to experience Live Concerts and Amazing Food! My family and I actually went for the Media Day on April 25th and had a GREAT time!
You get the chance to celebrate Latin culture at this annual festival featuring live concerts by internationally renowned Latin musical artists, savory authentic cuisine by SeaWorld’s Executive Chef Hector Colon, family-friendly activities and unique merchandise from local artisans.
Our 1st stop, was the food…of course 🙂 It smelled so good from the moment we walked in…we had to!
We sat, enjoyed our food, listened to music and then walked around to check out all the fun merchandise.
New this year, SeaWorld transforms the park’s garden area into a mini-fiesta for families. There will be monitors to watch the concert from afar, educational activities for children, domino tables, up-close encounters with some of SeaWorld’s amazing animal ambassadors and much more. Viva la Música festival activities begin at 1 p.m. each Saturday with concerts starting at 4 p.m. at Bayside Stadium.
Also new this year to the decadent array of Caribbean and Latin dishes is the tripleta sandwich and frozen piña colada. The tripleta sandwich is a hearty dish full of sizzling flavor made with roast pork, chicken, steak, cheese, potato sticks and a special SeaWorld sauce. Guests may also purchase a frozen piña colada and enjoy it straight out of a freshly cut pineapple.
Experience Savory Authentic Cuisine
Some returning favorites include: empanadas, chicharrones (fried pork rinds), bacalaítos (fried salted cod) and piraguas (shaved ice with tropical flavors). Pastries, beers, margaritas, mojitos, cuba libres, sangrias and wines are also available.
