Calle Ocho Festival - March 12, 2017

Calle Ocho Carnaval

The nation's largest street party is a celebration of latin heritage, food and unmistakeable latin beat, el Festival de la Ocho is definitely the place to be this Sunday.

Not your typical festival, Calle Ocho has earned a place in the Guinness World of Records five times (so far!) for:

  • The largest conga line in 1988
  • The biggest piñata in 1990
  • The longest cigar in 2000
  • The largest number of domino players at one place in 2008, and
  • More recently in 2012, for putting together the largest image made with flags, 422 flags from around the world were held together to form one giant "1" to simbolize unity, "One World", a world without borders.

We could only guess at what they will surprise us with this year!

So, yes, come for the food, tons of different dishes from the many Latin communities, the salsa and merengue on dozens of stages set up throughout, and the electric atmosphere that is Calle Ocho en Carnaval!

A hop-on hop-off trolley runs parallel on S.W. 7th Street with stops on Beacon Boulevard, 22nd Ave, 17th Ave, and 12th Ave.

When? Sunday March 12, 2017 - 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Spring Awakening: The Hit Coming-of-Age Rock Musical
February 23 - March 4, 2017

Spring Awakening in South Florida in March 2017

Spring Awakening took Broadway by storm when it premiered, winning eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical).

Based on an German play that shocked and scandalized 19th-century audiences, it's now a bold and touching musical that captures the timeless and turbulent experience of adolescence.

Punctuated by an electrifying and hauntingly beautiful rock score by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening follows a group of teens as they navigate the confusing and often troubled waters of teenage angst and their budding sexuality. The characters grapple with such issues as teen suicide, pregnancy and self-identity -- topics that remain relevant to today's teens more than a century after the play was first written.

When? February 23 - March 4, 2017

Where? Jerry Herman Ring Theatre at 1312 Miller Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33124

How Much? $25
