Little Havana aptly plays host to Carnaval in Miami. You can blame or thank the Kiwanis club for putting on these ten events that are held over a course of ten days in February and March, depending on the year. You’ll probably be thanking the club for the food, music, sport and gastronomic competitions, and especially for the Latin jazz that marks a very Latino note on a Latino score. Carnaval is a rocking party.
Running off the same vein as Carnaval is Calle Ocho, which in fact takes place on one of Carnaval’s ten days and can be said to be a part of it. It deserves dedicated mention because it’s quite a huge block party, essentially, that brings Miami’s Hispanic character to bear. It takes place on the street of the same name, and it is a must-partake if you’re in Miami in March.
