It’s Kissimmee’s birthday and this weekend they’re throwing a huge party downtown.
The Kowtown moniker comes from the fact that the city depended heavily on ranching for income from the late 1800s until Walt Disney World opened in 1971.
Enjoy live entertainment, games, arts and crafts, a hot dog eating contest and the 23rd annual Meatloaf Cook-Off.
The Kowtown Festival is free to attend and is fun for the whole family.
