We are just a week into 2013, and the fun has already started at SeaWorld Orlando. The park is kicking off the festival season early with the return of last year’s very popular Just for Kids. Just for Kids is a celebration for the smaller set, with tons of fun, and special concerts aimed at those with preschoolers. The event happens Saturdays in January and is just the thing to kick away the winter blues.
The fun kicks off Saturday January 12th with Fun Zones, fun dining opportunities and a concert from the Imagination Movers. The Imagination Movers currently has a show that airs on Playhouse Disney and is a fun rock show just for kids.
The rest of the concert line up includes:
Jan 12 Imagination Movers
Jan 19 Laurie Berkner – Solo!
Jan 26 Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve
Feb 2 Kratt Brothers Live featuring the stars of Wild Kratts
Concerts are included with park admission and seating will be limited. Platinum Pass Member reserved seating is not available for concerts. Tickets will be distributed across from Nautilus Theater starting at 9am each concert date on a first-come, first-served basis.
