05 09 2007
It is carnival time soon in Florida, so anyway visiting the region in October should be prepared to put on their glad rags and get into the party spirit.
Organised by Broward Caribbean Carnival, The People's Carnival is held in Miramar in the south of the US state on October 7th.
Claiming to be one of the largest cultural events in the local area, it is surely an occasion that cannot afford to be missed by passing tourists.
The organisers describe the event as a colourful display of pageantry, which sounds like the perfect happy holiday fun. Music will be provided by steel drum bands among others, while food lovers will have the chance to feast on American and Caribbean cuisine.
Admission for the event is $20 (£9.95) for adults, $10 (£4.97) for kids aged between six and 15 and children aged under six get in free.
Tourists staying closer to Miami will also be able to join in carnival festivities held in the city during October.
