Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL
Over the Columbus Day Holiday weekend, excitement was stoked throughout the South Florida Caribbean community courtesy of the 2019 installment of Miami Carnival, as well as all the festivities and celebrations that sprouted therefrom. This year’s Miami Carnival marked its 35th anniversary, with North Miami serving as the situs of the first Carnival back in 1984. Naturally, the purpose of this marvelous event is to celebrate and showcase the beauty and uniqueness of Caribbean roots, culture, and heritage the world over. In that spirit, each year over the course of ten days in October that culminate on Columbus Day, more than 100,000 people come together from both within and outside Miami to revel in this energetic yet family-oriented Caribbean festival. The sights and sounds are always unmistakable, especially when it comes to the Carnival’s Sunday Parade and Concert later in the night. This year was no different as scores of bands and masqueraders strutted their stuff, while exhibiting their vibrantly colored costumes, in their quest to impress the judging panel and garner some of the most esteemed Carnival awards that will enable them to boast for years to come about their accomplishment at Miami Carnival.
