Every Saturday through May 16, 2015, Sea World Orlando brings Latin culture alive during their annual Viva La Musica Festival. Now in its ninth year, this fun, family-friendly event is a place where guests can savor authentic Latin food, see and buy local art and dance to the hottest Latin bands.

Visit Orlando's Latin music lovers had the opportunity to preview the event and here is what we enjoyed best about SeaWorld's Viva La Musica 2015.

This past Saturday, SeaWorld debuted this annual festival with a special performance from Olga Tañon. The quality of the music talent is very impressive but even more impressive is the enthusiastic fans that lined up before the rope was dropped and ran to save their first-row seats three hours before the show.

But let's get back to the music. There was a small stage with a Latin band playing salsa and merengue music for those ready to dance the whole afternoon. SeaWorld characters joined the fun and encouraged visitors to showcase their best Latin moves.
