5. Unique Local Artisans

What's a festival without a little sprinkling of creativity? Scattered around the park you can discover local artists creating jewelry or painting masterpieces. This is your chance to take home a bit of Orlando or find that perfect gift for when you return home.

6. Cool Cars

Continuing the tradition of partnering with the USO of Central Florida, the celebration also salutes America's military with the Florida Cool Cars display. Also not-to-miss is the Harley-Davidson bike display for a perfect selfie!

7. Roller Coaster Time

Not a festival feature, but worth checking out on any visit, is SeaWorld Orlando's newest roller coaster, Mako. This hyper-speed experience is Orlando's longest, tallest and fastest inspired by the Mako shark that swims at speeds up to 80 mph while hunting! Ride it if you dare!
