Latin culture is celebrated at Viva la Musica

Beginning this weekend, visitors to Busch Gardens and SeaWorld will be treated to concerts featuring some of the biggest names in Latin music. Viva la Música returns to these Central Florida theme parks offering many extras. Latin cuisine, concerts, arts & crafts are all included in the theme park admission.

He’ll be serving up savory dishes including lechón, arroz con gandules y yuca al mojo, arroz con pollo, habichuelas coloradas y maduros, carne frita con tostones, alcapurrias and ceviche.

Although events are included in admission, many will purchase a VIP package so that they can reserve floor-level seats (SeaWorld) or front of center-stage (Busch Gardens) at the concerts. You may also purchase a VIP package that includes VIP seating and a meal. This additional charge is sure to be worth it when enjoying the concert by a favorite musician.

While the weekends may be a little more crowded than weekdays at these Florida theme parks, the Viva la Música festivities are worth the additional wait in lines you might experience. Go early in the day to enjoy the park, then spend the afternoon soaking up the Latin culture. The entire family is sure to enjoy the food, drink, music and fun. Viva la Música!
