It’s getting to be all about the festivals here in Orlando. Whether it’s Mardi Gras at Universal, Flower and Garden at EPCOT, or Bands Brews and BBQ at SeaWorld. Only this year SeaWorld is re-branding their spring festival into something new.
There are still the bands and the BBQ and even the brew, but they’re adding more menu items and more entertainment.
Combining unique culinary delights with memorable performances on 14 consecutive Saturdays, the Seven Seas Food Festival is coming to SeaWorld Orlando Feb. 11 – May 13, 2017.
