Miami Seaquarium has announced the return of its Latin and Caribbean food and music festival, “Tastes of Miami,” taking place this holiday season, Dec. 26-30.
The colorful and energetic five-day festival will showcase an array of Latin and Caribbean food, music, dance, arts and crafts. Park guests can discover the diverse cultures that make Miami a unique and vibrant international city.
“We are excited to bring back this one-of-a-kind event that will bring a taste of local culture inspired by our diverse city,” said Eric Eimstad, general manager for Miami Seaquarium.
“Everyone is welcome to come out and enjoy food, music and fun this holiday season.”
Each day of Tastes of Miami, local food trucks will be featuring their savory dishes for purchase. In addition, the park’s food locations will offer special menu items such as tropical drinks; churros; arepas (round yellow corn cakes), and Tex-Mex-Corn, roasted corn dipped in melted butter seasoned with a mix of parmesan cheese, chili powder, and parsley flakes.
Miami Seaquarium will be swaying to Latin and Caribbean beats with live musical performances by local bands. On select days, guests can practice their dance moves — including Salsa and Zumba — with some of the best dance instructors.
Kids can enjoy a play area with games and prizes, bounce houses, arts and crafts, and much more! There is even more to discover in the Kids Conservation Fun Zone where they will have the opportunity to learn what different marine animals eat through a hands-on and sensory stimulating display.
Miami Seaquarium is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Tastes of Miami activities will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Admission to the Tastes of Miami activities is included with park admission. A special $10 discount offer is available online. For more information on the event visit www.miamiseaquarium.com.
