February is the month of love… so why shouldn’t it be filled with everything that you love? This month on I-Drive the calendar is boasting with the events, festivals, shows, conventions and dining options that you love the most. Here are the February 2020 Happenings on I-Drive.
SeaWorld & Aquatica
The Duck Derby kicked off the celebrations on February 1st. But there is so much more! SeaWorld’s popular Seven Seas Festival will be kicking off on February 7th! Known largely for the amazing cuisine that guests have the opportunity to enjoy as they taste their way around the world of international street foods, the event also offers world-class entertainment at the Bayside stadium every Saturday and Sunday at the Bayside Stadium, as well as drool-worthy local craft beers to sample as you make your way through the park! This event is just like SeaWorld itself in that it has something for everyone, and it will only be running through May 3rd so be sure you make it!
It’s baaack! Head to Universal Orlando to get in on nightly parades, colorful costumes and of course, countless beads flying through the air. But that’s not all! Mardi Gras just wouldn’t be complete without mouthwatering cajun food and a live concert from some of the biggest names as well as bands who have traveled from New Orleans to celebrate with us in Orlando. Some of the headliners who will be taking the stage this month include The Roots, Bell Biv DeVoe, and TLC. Check out the whole line up here. Enjoying the February 2020 Happenings on I-Drive?

Orlando Food and Wine Festival
After outgrowing its previous location in downtown Orlando, the third annual Orlando Food and Wine Festival will be taking to International Drive’s ICON Park this year! Aside from the 35 plus vineyards, over 100 wines to try, and Rose’ garden, this event that benefits the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando will also feature a pet adoption puppy park, live music by the 502s and Universal Funk Orchestra, and each ticket includes a free ride on the iconic Wheel at ICON Park. This event is going to be pouring fun, and benefits a great cause!
Orange County Convention Center
The convention center will be hosting two popular public events this month that you won’t want to miss! If you’re an actor, actress or simply have a passion for theatre, check out the Florida State Junior Thespian Festival from February 6th to the 8th to enjoy mingling with other thespians and even catch a great live show or two. Then, from February 26th to the 28th, they’ll be hosting the annual Global Pet Expo presented by the American Pet Products Association and Pet Industry Distributors Association, where you will find everything you need, and some, for your furry friend! This is the largest annual trade show that features the newest and most innovative pet products on the market today and will also give attendees the opportunity to meet with educated vendors in the pet products industry!
And of course, the day we’ve all been waiting for.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and here on I-Drive we’re all about celebrating love! Many restaurants have put together special offerings for you and your special someone to enjoy on Valentine’s Day!
If you’re looking to elevate your Valentine’s Day beyond your significant other’s expectations, Del Frisco’s will be celebrating V-Day with rare wines, exquisite shared plates, hand-cut steaks and fresh seafood for an experience that is second to none.
And for a Brazilian steakhouse experience, come wine and dine your other half at Texas De Brazil, where you can enjoy their gourmet salad area, flame-grilled meats, and endless satisfaction. Then, finish the evening on a sweet note with their drool-worthy Red Velvet Fusion Cake… satisfaction at its finest.
But for those whose perfect idea of a Valentine’s Day celebration is partying the night away, head to VAULT 5421 for their free Vampire Ball! Inspire your inner vampire with special blood bag cocktails, dark tunes, and movies like Fright Night, True Blood and What We Do In The Shadows playing the lie screens all night long! Come in your fanciest vampire attire to get a free shot and take part in their raffles for a ghostly night of fun in the name of love.
