Visitors from around the globe came by Little Havana to be a part of the largest Hispanic street festival in the Southeastern United States. Little Havana vibrated with the hip-shaking rhythms of Latin music from salsa to hip-hop, including street performers and eight dedicated stages. Event-goers joined street dancers or create their own conga line as they bring the music to life; enjoy hundreds of international food kiosks simmering with Latin flavors, sample products from national brands and more. We are thrilled to have been a part of the Calle Ocho Festival 2017. #calleocho #calle8 #immigration #taxpreparation #creditrepair #tax #taxes #taxservice
La Familia Multiservices Celebrates Gay8 Festival 2017
On January 15th, Miami’s annual Gay8 festival once again took over the streets of Little Havana, and throngs of Magic City locals – including us here at La Familia Multiservices! – couldn’t wait to take part. Celebrating all things diversity, this daylong festival has become a mecca of art, music and food for Miami’s Hispanic LGBT community, and we at La Familia Multiservices were thrilled to be able to host a booth and join in the fun.
While the festival itself only lasted one day, in true Miami fashion, the weekend couldn’t go by without a blowout; so the two days leading up Gay8 were filled with tons of dinners, art events and dance parties in Little Havana to get the party started early. During Gay8 itself, the stretch of Calle Ocho between 14th and 17th Avenue came alive with food booths and restaurants competing to whip up the best media noche sandwiches, croquetas, cafecitos and more. When we weren’t stuffing our faces (because in Little Havana, that’s what you do), we watched concerts by Palo, Suenalo, Spam Allstars on the Main Stage, or saw pop-up dance and theatric performances that kept the party going ‘til 10 p.m. If we wanted a break from the sun, we had one. Throughout the day, crowds of festival goers ducked into Calle Ocho’s own renovated cultural gem, Miami Dade College’s Tower Theater, to see a range of LGBT-tinged films like “The Day it Snowed in Miami.” And for the cherry on top of an already-cultural event, art was everywhere. In fact, Miami’s best local painters and sculptors added to the affair by selling their beautiful, thought-provoking art that impressed visitors far and wide.
Back at our booth, we at La Familia Multiservices happily welcomed hundreds of friends and clients that came by to visit and take advantage of the day. The Gay8 festival is yet another example of just how vibrant and exciting Miami can be, and for us, it was another way to celebrate our community – and of course, show it off.
