The tour features architectural details, cultural history and other interesting tidbits from the mind of South Florida’s most respected historian.
Carnaval de Barranquilla – La Guacherna
Little Havana is about to get a taste of Colombia, thanks to Viernes Culturales and O&E Arts and Culture. Little Havana will celebrate “Carnaval de Barranquilla en Miami.” The upcoming festival called “La Guacherna” will bring Colombian dance troupes, folkloric performances, costumed dancers, Cuban conga players “Tambores Del Sur” and Uruguayan street performers to Calle Ocho. The festivities are scheduled for Friday, February 25th at 7:00 p.m. at Calle Ocho’s historical Domino Park. This event will mark the 5th year of “Carnaval de Barranquilla”.
