14 October 2022: Experience Kissimmee, the official tourism authority for Osceola County, Florida, is delighted to announce the launch of a video in partnership with the UK’s singing Marsh Family. The talented family kept the nation entertained during Covid-19 with hilarious adaptations of popular songs performed from their living room in Canterbury, Kent.
Experience Kissimmee invited the family to the Vacation Home Capital of the World® to discover the family-friendly destination and create a new song for their popular YouTube channel, with lyrics coined around their adventures.
The new song is a quirky rendition of the classic folk song The House of the Rising Sun, chosen specifically to reflect their stay in a vacation home. The video was recorded from their Kissimmee ‘home away from home’, a stunning six-bedroom Jeeves Florida Rentals property at Encore Resort, and the song is titled ‘The House of So Much Fun’.
During their time in Kissimmee, the family zip-lined across alligators at Gatorland, enjoyed an iconic airboat ride on the Everglades with Wild Florida, kayaked through Cypress Forest on an eco-tour with the Paddling Center at Shingle Creek, and spent a day enjoying all the thrilling attractions at Universal Orlando Resort®.
Mrs Danielle Marsh said: “We were all so excited about our family holiday to Kissimmee and we had the most incredible time together. What surprised us most about Kissimmee was how much variety there was in the activities and the experiences within a short drive. Kissimmee seems like it has lots of different aspects of America rolled into one: you can turn one corner and find very different places, people and things going on. We had so much fun creating this new song and we hope it will inspire other families to make their own adventures in Kissimmee.”
DT Minich, President/CEO of Experience Kissimmee, said: “It was a real honour to host The Marsh Family in Kissimmee. The joy their songs spread during the pandemic reached us here in Kissimmee, so we wanted to thank them in our own very special and magical way. We love how creative they were with their song and the whole team is humming ‘there is a house in Kissimmee’. They were an absolute delight to host and we look forward to welcoming them back in the future”.
