With awe-inspiring lasers and nightly fireworks, Electric Ocean brings a full line-up of amazing fun to SeaWorld Orlando.

Over at the Kennedy Space Center this summer there is a wonderful series of special events lined up to make your visit just that much better. Scattered throughout the summer you’ll find rocket launches, opportunities to meet astronauts in the daily “Astronaut Encounter,” and even the chance to board the Shuttle Launch Experience alongside a real retired astronaut in their “Fly With An Astronaut” series!

Wrapping up our list of summer events in Orlando, check out the Orlando Food Truck Bazaar. The original traveling food truck event in the U.S., the Food Truck Bazaar generally features 10-15 mobile eateries serving up gourmet food, ethnic dishes, and good old-fashioned BBQ. It’s recommended that you save room for dessert and bring something to sit on (because the event typically takes place in a parking lot). The Food Truck Bazaar is free to attend, but food is separately priced.

Whatever you do this summer, there’s clearly plenty to keep you busy here in Orlando. Have fun!
