“Super Bowl LIVE will completely transform Downtown Miami,” said Rodney Barreto, MSBHC chair. “Our team has worked hard to bring the game to everyone and create a memorable, fun and interactive Super Bowl experience for visitors and residents alike.”
Super Bowl LIVE presented by Verizon will be running from Jan. 25 to Feb, 1. The fan festival will feature evening concerts at the Amphitheater, a Huddle Down Community Stage, Road to the 11th Super Bowl activation, Tailgate Town featuring a Culinary stage, an Environmental Village, live water shows, evening parades, fireworks and much more.
