Orlando Bowl Week Brings Football Fans to the City

If you like football, this is the week to be in Orlando.

This weekend, the City Beautiful plays host to not one, but two bowl games.

The first is the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl on December 28 at 6:30pm at the Florida Citrus Bowl (that’s tonight folks). The North Carolina State Wolfpack will be facing off against the West Virginia Mountaineers. Tickets are on sale starting at only $25 and going up to $65.

Then on Thursday, December 30, the annual Orlando Citrus Parade takes to the streets of downtown. The citrus floats are constructed by 600+ volunteers who attach the oranges, tangerines and grapefruits to a wire frame using rubber bands.

The event starts at 11am, and while curbside seating is free, if you want to be on TV, grandstand seating in the broadcast area is available for $23.

The second game is the Capital One Bowl on January 1, 2011 at the Florida Citrus Bowl. It pits the Michigan State Spartans against the Alabama Crimson Tide. The game starts at 1pm and tickets range from $40 to $90.

Parking around the stadium is expected to be very limited for both Bowl games, so I would suggest parking near the Amway Center and taking the free shuttle service. It starts at 3:30pm and runs until 2 hours after the game.
