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.

  • 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.
