Viva La Musica with Daddy Yankee, SeaWorld OrlandoIt’s about to get really hot in Orlando when the annual Latin food and concert festival Viva La Musica hits SeaWorld Orlando this weekend and every Saturday through May 4. The Orlando theme park will take guests into the Latin culture with Latin food, fun and live performances from internationally renowned Latin musical artists including Daddy Yankee who kicks off the spicy event this Saturday, April 13.

The Puerto Rican reggaeton and hip hop songwriter and singer will bring his latest hit, Limbo, to the Bayside Stadium for a high-energy concert that will have you dancing all afternoon long! Daddy Yankee will be followed by such award-winning artists as Willie Colon on Saturday, April 20; Grupomania, Saturday, April 27 and El Gran Combo on Saturday, May 4. All Viva La Musica concerts begin at 3 p.m. at Bayside Stadium and are included in regular SeaWorld Orlando theme park admission.

The Latin fun actually beings at noon along the Bayside walkway where guests can get a taste of the Latin culture with dishes created by SeaWorld Orlando’s own Executive Chef Hector Colon. Colon has cooked up quite a menu with his own unique flavors and dishes that take you inside the culture including Lechon, arroz con gandules y yucca al mojo, habichuelas coloradas y maduros, carne frita con tostones, alcapurrias and ceviche.

Then on Sunday, you keep the Latin food, music and fun going during Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s own Viva La Musica event.
