If you are familiar with Florida, then you are already probably aware of all the stellar Orlando Attractions that are basically open and available throughout the year. That said, summertime ups the ante a bit and there are even more Orlando Summer Events to enjoy during the warmest months of the year.
On June 22nd, the CAHM Festival will be celebrating the culture of the Caribbean community from 12pm – 8pm. Festival attendees will have the chance to sample Trinidadian, Guyanese, Jamaican and Haitian food before rocking out to music from the islands of Grenada, St. Lucia and the Bahamas. The New Generation Branches Steel Orchestra will also be providing steel band music. For the 21-and-older crowd, there will be an opportunity to taste the fermented flavors of Caribbean beers like Prestige, Kalik, Red Stripe, Banks, Carib and Presidente.
The Go Orlando Card attractions pass can get you into 35 O-Town attractions and earn you discounts totaling up to 55% off gate prices. As a special thank you to pass-holders, it’s possible to save an additional $15 by adding on an Any Day Ticket to SeaWorld for $80 as a special bonus attraction!
Seeing outstanding Orlando attractions is a good way to work up an appetite, so a stop at the traveling Orlando Food Truck Bazaar may be in order. The original traveling food truck event in the U.S., the Food Truck Bazaar generally features 10-15 mobile eateries serving up gourmet food, ethnic dishes and good old-fashioned BBQ. It’s recommended that you save room for dessert and bring something to sit on (because the event takes place in a parking lot).
When tourists visit my events, I want them leaving saying ‘Orlando has a fantastic food truck scene,” says Mark Baratelli, the owner of the traveling event. Refer to FTB’s calendar to see where it will be taking place on a given day, but there’s no need to worry, all of the locations are within an hour-long drive of Orlando.
Wrestling fans may want to pin down a Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater ticket. The event, which is taking place on June 27 and August 29 in Kissimmee’s Osceola Heritage Park, is regarded as a premier pro wrestling dinner show by those who know. In addition to treating attendees to live music from the Manor House Band and a savory meal from executive chef Zach Barnes, dinner guests will take in a theater experience that “delivers wrestling with class and character in a unique, professional way.” Suffice to say, the show will be a hit with foodies, music-lovers and wrestling fans of all ages. Oh Yeah!
