The 4th annual Fiestas De La Calle took place this past weekend on Saturday, January 19th and Sunday, January 20th in Miami, Florida. It was a beautiful weekend to spend with family and friends in the two-day Puerto Rican festival celebrated in South Florida. What Julian Gil, TV star and founder of Fiestas De La Calle, alongside his Gil productions team started just four years ago has become the biggest Latin American celebration in Miami.
This year the festival was held in MANA Wynwood. The outdoor venue was filled with people of all ages to celebrate Miami's version of Puerto-Rico's San Sebastian street festival also known as SANSE. Fiestas De La Calle has become the most anticipated celebration for Latinos in South Florida. There's so much to look forward to and enjoy which is why it's a success year after year. From the family-friendly atmosphere, live entertainment, authentic Puerto Rican food and handcrafted artisan goods there is something for everyone.
Juan Gil and his talented team outdid themselves this year. With the city's permission the party was on-going until 3 am with new entertainment like the Alcapurria challenge and a special guest performance by singer-songwriter Farruko.
With Fiestas De La Calle, Puerto Ricans living outside of the Enchanted Island are gifted a little piece of paradise. The party is over but while we wait for the 5th edition of Fiestas De La Calle Miami 2020 we have La Placita. The Puerto Rican restaurant founded by Julian Gil and chef Jose Medin is located in 6789 Biscayne Blvd. Just look for the beautiful Puerto Rican flag painted by Hector Collazo Hernandez on the building!
Without a doubt the island of Puerto Rico and it's people
strive to spread positive Coqui vibes wherever we go!
