Gatorland, the “Alligator Capital of the World,” will be hosting Gatorpalooza again this year, May 14-15. Included with park admission will be live music, specialty food and craft vendors, artisans, family fun, games, appearances by the Gatorland Vlog Team, and, of course, all the alligators, animals, and awesomeness that a day at Gatorland has to offer.
“We are so excited to host our Gatorpalooza festival again, and roll out Gatorland’s unique style of fun and excitement during this special weekend event,” said Mark McHugh, President, and CEO of Gatorland. “No other attraction says “Florida” like Gatorland, and our very own 2nd Annual Florida Man Challenge takes it over the top!” On Saturday, May 14th, this wild event has our crazy competitors racing through a muddy swamp, swarming with giant alligators in a Triathlon-style event like no other! It’s the kind of sporting event that makes the rest of the U.S. shake their heads and say, “Only in Florida!” while everyone in Florida just shakes their head and says, “Only at Gatorland!”
