Life-size ‘Dumbo’ to take flight at 2019 Florida Blueberry Festival
A life-size “Dumbo” will take flight at the 2019 Florida Blueberry Festival on Saturday, March 30 in Kissimmee, Fla.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Tim Burton’s live-action remake of the 1941 Disney film, Dumbo will fly up to 30 miles per hour over the festival, held at Formosa Garden’s Event Center. The famous elephant is 5 foot 5 inches long, 3 foot 8 inches tall, and has a 10-foot ear-span!
This brand-new live-action adventure expands on the classic story of “Dumbo,” as circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires former circus star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his kids Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to take care of a newborn elephant whose giant ears have already made him a laughingstock. Once everyone discovers that Dumbo can fly, a persuasive entrepreneur named V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton) recruits the pachyderm for his newest entertainment project, Dreamland. But not everything is as dreamy as it seems.
Guests can see Dumbo take flight starting at 1:30 p.m. at the festival, located at 3050 Formosa Garden Blvd. To learn more about this year’s Florida Blueberry Festival, visit FloridaBlueberryFestival.org.
