It's Barbecue Time!

by Staff

Here at SeaWorld we love getting involved with the community and especially with good causes. The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Bar-B-Que Cook-Off is taking place at SeaWorld San Antonio this year! Wow, try saying that three times fast!

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has been putting on the Bar-B-Que Cook-Off for 14 years and has raised over $96 million for the San Antonio Livestock Exposition Scholarship Fund. This event has become a huge attraction that requires the perfect venue. SeaWorld has just that and more with one of the largest parking lots in San Antonio, a great facility and a strong enthusiastic team to help make this event better than ever!

The planning for this event is a huge undertaking with over 250 teams in the competition and SeaWorld even has a team participating in the event. These cooks and teams really get into their barbecue!

The team members at SeaWorld are a proud bunch, and through our partnership with the Rodeo, wanted to give more by showing off the park. We decided to open the Main Entrance Plaza, a few gift shops, Dolphin Cove area (where guests can feed, observe and even touch a dolphin), Sharks/The Coral Reef, and Seaside Landing for Bar-B-Que Cook-Off visitors to enjoy. There may even be some random visits from various animals throughout the day.

That's not all! There will be a concert held at the park's Celebration Cove featuring Tracy Lawrence as the headliner. This is a great outdoor venue to see a concert and relax under the stars!

I personally plan on fasting for about a week before the event if the food we sampled recently is any indication of what is coming. I am ready to eat more, lots more! I hope to see you all here!

Don't miss this great event on Saturday, January 30 from 10 a.m. to midnight. Admission for adults is $12. Children ages 12 and under are free. Active military are free with military ID. Pre-sale tickets are available for $8 at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo box office.
