Miami Preparations by now

So now Labor Day is over and the next focus for everyone will be Miami Carnival. If you have not started at all making preparations for this one you better get on the ball, especially if you are from out of town.

The hardest thing I suppose is getting hotel reservations. Most out of towners like to go to the "Beach" to be able to enjoy that scenery and party. It is the area to be but it doesn't have to be the area to stay. If South Beach hotels are booked up then there is all the way up to Ft Lauderdale area to get hotels, with a car anything is possible.

The next thing is mas. Researching for carnival bands is major. If you are accustomed playing with a specific band then you are fine, but if you are a first timer (or your band isn't presenting this year) I suppose it can be a little difficult to decide where to go. All bands have had their issues, so do some research, ask around. Majority of the bands are all inclusive. Ensure that you find out from bands what their all inclusive means. If you are not playing but want to take in the "parade" check out so that you can get your tickets for entry to the park. Remember we are NO LONGER ON THE ROAD!!

List of bands can be found here:

Miami Broward One Carnival has added J'ouvert to the activities and if you are interested in partaking in that activity, registration is also required for bands.

Some people are all about the parties. Flyers are everywhere. Sometimes getting tickets for some events are difficult but where there is a will there is a way. Party flyers can be found Miami Carnival Flyers (continuously updated) and all over facebook.

Get on it!!!
