In 2015, this huge gala will kick off from March 15 and is expected to enthral one and all with loads of fun, food, music, culture and more.
Here’s what all one can look forward to after netting air tickets on flights to enjoy this Miami carnival!
Cultural Merrymaking: Calle Ocho is both a cultural fest and a boisterous street celebration. Held along the SW 8th Street, the carnival sees Miami’s Latin community coming out loud and proud to pay homage to their cultural heritage. Talented artists from all parts of the USA gather here to perform on various styles of Latin music, from hip hop to meringue and jazz to rap. Enthralling sounds of the Hispanic and Caribbean nations fill the air with intense patriotism! Various cultural events, magic shows and interesting competitions just add to this enigmatic aura, promising the visitors whale of a time and maximum bang for their monies spent on travel tickets and holiday deals.
Delicious Latin Delicacies: If you’re a food-lover, Calle Ocho Carnival is your opportunity to savour some of the most incredible Latin flavours. You will see innumerable stalls and shops serving foods from different countries like Colombia, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The local cuisines of Florida and the rest of the USA are also offered to delight epicureans who attend the event after disembarking their Miami flights.
Sit Back and Relax: When in Miami, it’s almost irresistible not to indulge in the soul-soothing serenity and solace which the city’s magnificent coast has to offer! Be it the vibrant Crandon Park Beach, beautiful Matheson Hammock Park Beach or secluded Virginia Key, top beaches in Miami are truly a delight to be at.
