Plenty to eat and drink at SeaWorld Orlando's Bands, Brew and BBQ event

The bands are always a big draw at SeaWorld Orlando's Bands, Brew & BBQ event, and this year's festival kicks off with Alan Jackson and Kid Rock appearing on February 1 and 2 respectively. You can read more about that here. However, there's more to the event than just great music. As the name implies, there's brew and BBQ in abundance.

The BBQ comes from places like Bubbalou's Bodacious Bar-B-Que, Cecil’s Texas Style BAR-B-Q and Sonny’s BBQ, as well as SeaWorld Orlando's own chefs. You can buy various meal combinations with tasty meat and side dishes to fill any appetite. Wash it all down with brew from among the comprehensive craft beer selection. If you do the samplers, you'll get the chance to taste plenty of different varieties.

Even though there are plenty of adult beverages, kids are welcome at the event, too. They can meet Shamu and other costumed characters, talk to educators, learn about animals, and play interactive games, and create masterpieces at the coloring station.

The video above shows highlights from last year's event to give you some idea of what to expect. It runs every weekend through March 9, when a Patrick Gibson concert closes out the season.

Harley-Davidson is an event sponsor, so if you ride your bike to SeaWorld Orlando, you'll get free parking. You can also take photos of some of the 2014 models that will be on display.
