On Sunday the 12th of March, hundreds of people flocked to Eighth Street in Little Havana to celebrate the return of the Calle Ocho Music Festival with a daylong celebration of the warm weather, great music, and vibrant atmosphere. The streets were full of people dancing and swaying to the music. As usual, people from all across Latin America came to celebrate and connect.

What is the Miami Carnaval and Calle Ocho Music Festival?

The Miami Carnaval is one of the most awaited events in Miami, with people from all over the state coming together to celebrate music and culture. The Kiwanis Club of Little Havana holds the festival annually, and all earnings go to local kids in need.

It's been 45 years since the Kiwanis started throwing this celebration, and it continues to attract a diverse and exciting crowd every time. The Miami Carnaval is the most popular festival because it is a sensory extravaganza.

This year's Carnival Miami Queen, Aymee Nuviola, had the audience pumped up. People of all ages were seen dancing and grooving in the street, and the activity was not confined to the stage. Attendees who weren't in the dancing crowd were indulging in all the delicious food and drink options at the venue.

This weekend was the first-ever Art on the Drive festival on Miami Beach, and organizers from the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana were hard at work getting ready for it. Did you enjoy attending this event as well as the Calle Ocho Music Festival? Let us know what you were most excited to see!
