carnival-miami.gif
In a country of immigrants, the showcasing of culture and vibrancy of diversity are pillars that make the United States exceptional. These pillars help keep the culture alive and build a reality that contextualizes the community that culture represents. The key for the continuation of this culture is the younger generation learning and becoming the embodiment of said culture. For Miami Carnival, this is illustrated in a most powerful way through the Junior Carnival. The Miami Jr. Carnival, presented by TD Bank, is set for Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Central Broward Regional Park (3700 Northwest 11th Place, Lauderhill, FL 33311) from 12noon-9pm is not only a platform for showcasing Caribbean culture, and a great opportunity for youth to participate, it’s a great avenue for developing artistry.
