WATCH THE REGATTA OF THE COLUMBUS DAY BOAT
9th of October
The 69th annual Columbus Day Regatta is not to be missed. On picturesque Biscayne Bay, Miami's oldest regatta takes sail. Spectators can witness beautiful vessels navigate the turquoise waters of Biscayne Bay in the hands of professional navigators. The best vantage point is in Coconut Grove, which is home to Regatta Park. For a bird's-eye perspective, head to the rooftops of The Mayfair at Coconut Grove or Mr. C Miami Coconut Grove — perhaps with a tropical cocktail in hand.
PARADE & CONCERT: MIAMI CARNIVAL
You've probably heard of Carnival's legendary celebrations in Brazil, Trinidad, and other parts of Latin America, but you can get in on the fun right here in Miami. Miami's Carnival takes place from October 8 to 10, deviating from the Lenten calendar and doing things in its own unique way. The 37th Annual Miami Carnival Parade and Concert will take place at the Miami-Dade County Fairgrounds and will include a parade of bands, pageantry, live musical acts, food and drink.
