The Rotary Club of South Miami has already begun plans for the 33rd annual festival February 20-21, 2016. This free event features 150 outstanding artists, a fine expanded food court and beer garden as well as live jazz onstage. For online vendor or artist applications and information, visit www.Southmiamiartfest.org.

By the way, these busy South Miami Rotarians are looking to help out with an upcoming Summit for the East Coast Greenway Alliance entitled Wheels: Advancing Florida’s Mobility Future. As members arrive with their families to MIA, they will be car-free promoting the use of bicycles and our mass transit system. This pro-biking group is developing a trail system to link many of the major cities along the Eastern Seaboard from Canada to Key West. Coordinating this weekend will be challenging and, you can be sure, informational for all involved.
