Country Thunder 2021 Details Announced

Country Thunder 2021

The Country Thunder Music Festival is set to serve up the biggest and best summer finale, September 10th to 12th, for some of the most rabid country music fans in America. 

“It’s going feel incredible to get back to the Sunshine State,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO, Troy Vollhoffer. “Our artists are ready, the fans are ready and we’re ready to deliver the greatest festival experience possible.

“The Festival is absolutely thrilled to return to Osceola Heritage Park and deliver good things to those who have waited.”

As promised, the Country Thunder Florida 2021 lineup is set to include some of the biggest names in country music. Eric Church, Morgan Wallen and Dierks Bentley are three of the best in the business, and each will be out to prove that they have been worth the wait.

Church is simply without peer when it comes to his live performance. Given that Florida is one of his strongest markets in North America, expect “Chief” to deliver an epic festival close on Sunday night.

Following 15 years of No.1 hits, top-selling albums and every industry award imaginable, the 2020 CMA Entertainer Of The Year dropped Hell Of A View late in 2020. Leave it to Eric Church to deliver when country fans needed him most.

Wallen has simply picked up where he left off in 2019 and 2020 with Dangerous: The Double Album, and fans at Country Thunder Florida will be the beneficiaries.

The hottest new act in the genre began his ascension to the top of the country music charts with Whiskey Glasses and Chasin’ You, before hitting it out of the park in 2020 with More Than My Hometown and 7 Summers.

Prior to the release of his new album, Wallen had a record-breaking run on the Apple Music Pre-Add charts at the tale-end of the year. It turned out to be a good omen as Dangerous: The Double Album exploded out of the box upon release. Fans at Country Thunder Florida will catch country music’s next mega-superstar in mid-flight!

Bentley, on the other hand, continues to be Mr. Reliable – a CT “veteran” and superb fan-favorite.

Every time he walks onto a Country Thunder stage, he brings his A-game, laying out the challenge for every other weekend artist.

The decorated multi-platinum singer-songwriter kept busy in 2020 by releasing a new single, “Gone,” which will be featured on his forthcoming new album.

Of course, it fits in nicely with nearly two-decades worth of hits and crowd pleasers.

Russell Dickerson, LANCO, HARDY, Lonestar, Sawyer Brown, Tenille Townes, Dallas Smith, Jon Langston, Jenny Tolman, Parker McCollum, Kameron Marlowe, and Nolan Sotillo head up the always-amazing supporting cast, with more to be announced.

Florida, we can’t wait to get back to Kissimmee and see you all again!

Weekend GA passes, single-day tickets, reserved seating, Platinum, camping, Glamping and all the extras are available by visiting countrythunder.com. Order by phone at 1-866-388-0007.

A reminder to current ticket holders: All ticketing options will be automatically honored for the rescheduled 2021 dates – fans do not have to do a thing. Ticket holders will receive further information today via e-mail.

Country Thunder Music Festivals has a 17-year history which boasts five other major, multi-day events in North America. The organization also hosts festivals in Arizona, Iowa, Saskatchewan, Wisconsin and Alberta.

Celebrate the People and Many Cultures That Make Central Florida Awesome at the Free Two-Day Festival That Features Over 1,000 Local Artists and Draws People From More Than 110 Different Cultures to Experience Music, Dance, Food, Visual Arts, Spoken Word, Games and Interactive Activities

Downtown Orlando’s annual celebration of the people and the many cultures that make Central Florida awesome, FusionFest, announces the return of the in-person festival, keeping CDC guidelines, on Thanksgiving Weekend: Saturday, November 28 from Noon to 8pm and Sunday, November 29 from Noon to 6pm.  Cultures from all across the world will fill the Seneff Arts Plaza in front of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and Orlando City Hall Commons Plaza for the free, two-day festival, which draws people from more than 110 different cultures to experience music, dance, food, visual arts, spoken word, games and interactive activities and features over 1,000 local artists, who will perform and showcase their work on the stages, gallery and interactive installations at FusionFest. 

Guests of FusionFest will enjoy the Opening Spectacle, International Food Court and Marketplace, three stages featuring music, dance, spoken word and fashion, Film Pavilion screening the MYgration Films in partnership with Global Peace Film Festival, Global Street Dance Party, Diversitastic! Choir, Interactive Experiences, Visual Arts Gallery, Fun and Games Station, exciting prizes, community panels, Fusion contests with cash awards up to $1,000, plus a new station highlighting cultural celebrations from around the world.

“FusionFest began as a grassroots movement,” says FusionFest Chief Instigator Terry Olson and Business and Development Manager Thali Sugisawa.  “When you see a festival the size of FusionFest, it is easy to think that this is a corporate effort, but it isn’t.  There is a Steering Committee in place of over 40 people representing many different cultures, ethnicities and communities.  Representation matters and FusionFest has it in mind since day one.  It is about honoring the diverse local community and highlighting Central Floridians talents, and we are proud to continually show the community and the world that people with different lifestyles and different ethnicities and heritages can live together in a non-divisive way.”

In compliance with state and local laws, FusionFest will implement a wide variety of health and safety protocols, which include: Six feet social distancing for tables, chairs and patron lines, temperature checks at dedicated entrances for staff, vendors, performers, volunteers, participants and all attendees, masks for vendors, staff and volunteers and facial coverings available for sale on site, increased handwashing and hand sanitizer stations throughout the festival, and continuous spraying of CDC-approved disinfectant on all high touch areas will be handled by several staff members. 

“With theme parks and schools open, we have examples to observe now,” says Olson and Sugisawa.  “We are conducting additional research at any outdoor festivals happening between now and then, and we attended the recent Florida Festivals and Events conference to discover and formalize best practices for social distancing at outdoor events to ensure that this year’s FusionFest is a safe, comfortable and secure environment, while also a fun-filled, memorable and always meaningful festival for everyone attending.”

FusionFest is a free to attend.  VIP Passports can be ordered in advance online or at the festival for $25, which include: (1) Neck Wallet, (4) Food Tokens, (1) Souvenir Button, (1) Prize Ticket and (1) Super Prize Raffle Ticket ($300 Gift Card).

Experience FusionFest on Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29, 2020 in Downtown Orlando.  For updates on the performance schedule, artist lineup and vendor stations and for more information, visit www.FusionFest.org for or call 407-836-5540.  Apply as an Artist, Vendor or Volunteer (until October 1) at www.FusionFest.org/JoinUs.

Night of a Million Lights at Give Kids The World

This week we were invited to preview the upcoming Night of a Million Lights event, taking place for the first time ever at Give Kids The World!

The Give Kids The World Village was forced to close back in March this year due to Covid-19, delaying more than 4,000 wishes. This 89-acre non-profit resort provides critically ill children and their families with magical week-long wish vacations at no cost to them. There are a total of 166 storybook residential villas for them to stay in while enjoying experiences at the local theme parks and attractions.

Night of a Million Lights is designed to raise funds to ensure that when they are able to reopen, the wishes for these families can be granted and return bigger and better than ever before.

This event has transformed the village into a dazzling wonderland!

The Night of a Million Lights features more than 3 million glittering lights, larger than life displays, and 45 amazingly decorated wish family residential villas. This really is a sight to see!

Once you enter the residential villas area, you will see each house has its own sponsor, some are very obvious who the sponsor is before you even read the sign, one of my favorites being the Crayola house!

I love the crayons “decorating” the house and their expressions!

Mayor Clayton’s home, which is home to the 6-foot tall bunny rabbit who governs the Village, has a garden area that is not to be missed with decorations under a beautiful archway perfect for those selfies!

They were busy at work setting up all the lights and we even saw a “whack a mole” game being set up.

Admission for all guests includes complimentary ice cream from the Village’s new centerpiece, Henri’s Starlight Scoops and hot cocoa. There is also unlimited access to the Village’s wheelchair-accessible rides and attractions.

Additional food and beverage and special edition holiday merchandise- including 3D glasses for the lights will be available for purchase.

Santa and some other surprises will be making this visit extra special for all guests!

Night of a Million Lights will take place from November 13 through to January 3, from 5:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m daily with staggered entry times to promote social distancing. Mask wearing will be required for all guests.

The Village is always open for more volunteers, especially to help decorate for this upcoming event, you can apply on their website now at http://gktw.org/lights/volunteer or email them at volunteer@gktw.org

To purchase tickets for the event please head to their website http://gktw.org/lights today as some busy days may start selling out.

Disney Paper Parks: Happy Haunts Part 1

Disney Paper Parks Halloween 2020

To help get everyone into the holiday spirit (see what I did there) the Disney Parks Blog is launching a new, four-part series of Disney Paper Parks inspired by Halloween and the Haunted Mansion!

These printable activity sheets will help Disney theme park fans bring a piece of the Disney Parks into their own homes, complete with instructions about how to create 3D versions of some of your favorite aspects of Disney Parks.

Today I am really stoked to share the part-one of the Disney Paper Parks series that includes Haunted Mansion home decorations!

Bring the macabre style of the Haunted Mansion into your home by printing out and crafting these spooky decorations that appeal to a variety of ages and skills. From the bats atop the queue stanchions to paper chains inspired by the Haunted Mansion’s wallpaper, the finishes will set the mood of the mansion in your home.

You also can use this release to transform your home with the spirits of the mansion using grinning ghosts shadow puppets!

Just as the Haunted Mansion is filled with illusions, the shadow puppets include rotating hand shadows, the Hitchhiking Ghosts, the Hatbox Ghost, and more (there’s always room for one more).

The Disney Paper Parks sheets were created for the Disney Parks Blog by talented Imagineers Stephanie Jazmines and Amy Young, and only require the use of scissors, glue, and folding along dotted lines in specific directions.

For best results, the Disney Parks Blog recommends printing the sheets at their actual size, not scaling them to fit the page. We also recommend adult participation or supervision for those with little ones to help make this great activity even more enjoyable.

Have fun and I can’t wait to share more Disney Paper Parks: Halloween Editionactivity sheets!

Note from the Disney Parks Blog Post: By downloading Disney Paper Parks, you acknowledge and agree that these materials are being provided to you for personal, non-commercial use.
