Miami Has Plenty Happening President's Day Weekend, Attending Any Of These?


Plenty going on this holiday weekend! What are you getting into? Here's a little list, thanks to the people over at the Miami Herald:

MIAMI INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW
The Miami International Boat Show and the Miami Yacht Show have joined forces to create a mega watercraft event that highlights everything from kayaks to the biggest, baddest yachts you’ve ever seen. This year the show returns to the Miami Beach Convention Center, but there are also events at Pride Park, Sea Isle Marina, One Herald Plaza, and Museum Park Marina.
Feb. 16-20, Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach; Tickets start at $15; www.miamiboatshow.com

COCONUT GROVE ARTS FESTIVAL
Miami’s favorite outdoor art festival, which started 58 years ago, has updated its image a bit — it’s going to have NFTs this year, as well as stacked shipping containers that will act as both a wall for mural artists and a stage. There will even be cooking competitions. But the main draw, as always, is the chance to stroll by the bay in the perfect South Florida winter witnessing the creativity of your fellow humans.

There will be stages with live music and local boutiques will display their collections.
