  • 2014 Calle Ocho Street Festival

    Posted by Jonathan on March 10th, 2014 (All posts by )

    The festival is an annual Miami event that I attended this past Sunday. The city closes down a section of SW 8th St, also known as Calle Ocho, in the Little Havana neighborhood. The weather was perfect and it was a lot of fun to walk around and photograph people.

      Quite the cast of characters.

    2. Anonymous Says:

      New York City has similar festivals. Most residents are familiar with the PR day parade, and plan their movements accordingly. Anyone who has seen the misogyny, harassment and assault of say, Bike Week or the Arab Spring can expect similar results at this display of pride. A few years back, the wrong feminist was wolf-packed and the local media took a risky gamble and covered it.

      Not that I lend much credence to what the old gray mare sez, but you gotta wonder when even they dare to print stuff like this:
