Calle Ocho Festival – March 10, 2013
If you’re looking for some festive fun, the Calle Ocho Festival is coming up! Calle Ocho is a grand celebration of the Hispanic Culture. The celebration takes place in the streets of Miami, filling up 23 blocks with musical stages, youth sites, food vendors and more.
Although the Calle Ocho Festival is not counted among the official Hispanic holidays, there are over one million people who show up to this event to see top Hispanic artists perform at pretty much every street intersection on their designated stages. You’ll hear all different types of music including: salsa, reggeaton, merengue, bachata, balada, hip hop and much more. This isn’t what attracts people to the Calle Ocho Festival though, the food is definitely why. There are so many typical Latin flavors to taste, especially Cuban. There are hundreds of kiosks offering delicious international foods along with free samples so you won’t be disappointed in what you buy.
