On Saturday, December 22nd, the House of Blues Orlando at Disney Springs played host to the 2018 edition Orlando Country Rocks. The emcee for the night was Sara Michaels from WPCV, 97 Country, in Lakeland. Her show, “On the Porch,” is an integral part of Central Florida’s country music landscape.
Those with a hankering for sweet corn will want to check out the 37th Annual Zellwood Sweet Corn Festival happening this weekend.
The festival is being held both Saturday and Sunday (May 14 and 15, if you rely on the calendar) from 10am to 7pm.
There is a major change from previous years – the corn is not included in the admission. I know, bummer, right? But there will be several vendors selling a wealth of food, including different styles of sweet corn, like boiled and grilled.
You’ll also be able to get your daily fill of country music, with scheduled artists like Rhett Atkins, Suzy Bogguss, Jeff Bates, Jeff Hurst and more. This is included with admission.
Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the gate (age 13 and older), $5 for kids (6-12) and free for 5 and under. The carnival rides are separate, with daily wristbands costing $12 in advance and $15 day of.
