2010 Calle Ocho

One week each March, Miami transforms itself into a traditional Latin street festival. Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) becomes the scene of Carnaval as spectators gather to celebrate in the city’s largest annual party. The 2010 festival began on February 26th with the Carnaval Miami 8K run and continues through the grand finale tomorrow on Sunday March 14th with the Calle Ocho block party. The festival closes off 24 blocks of SW 8th Street to host dancing, food, drink and multiple stages of live entertainment. In 1988, this festival was the scene of a Guinness World Record, as 119,986 people joined in the world’s longest conga line! Not sure I'll have the courage to brave the crowd to shoot some pictures. May be, may be not.
