Last Saturday what a fun day it was, as you recall my husband and I were provided complimentary admission to attend SeaWorld’s Viva La Música event hosted by Ella Media.
The celebration started with a feast consisting of arroz con gandules, maduros, tostones, chicken skewers and pork. Then off to meet with SeaWorld’s Executive Chef Héctor Colόn who told me his inspiration to cook comes from the enjoyment of his guests savoring this special dishes prepared with care and honoring his own Caribbean heritage.
To our surprise the party was just commencing and we were in for another treat, a special meet and greet with who else but Elvis Crespo with whom I had the chance to get a picture before the show. At the Bayside Stadium location where the concerts take place, we danced to the merengue beat, laughed and enjoyed Elvis Crespo live.
This was the first time we attended Viva La Música and found out many interesting things, like this event not only showcases Latino food and music but also supports local Hispanic talent like Pedro Brull a Cuban fine artist of Central Florida and that SeaWorld organizes this event yearly basis showing it’s commitment to embrace the Hispanic culture and traditions.
If you enjoy Latino culture this event at SeaWorld it is a must do, here is the scoop on the talent coming up this weekend and the weeks to come:
- April 21 – Grupo Niche (salsa)
- April 28 – RKM & Ken-Y (reggaeton)
