Caribbean Carnival Returns To Miami

 MIAMI, FL - Miami is set to come alive with the culture of the Caribbean this weekend as the annual Miami/Broward Carnival gears up to take over the City of Miami Gardens.

The annual parade is set for Sunday, October 10th, 2010, at SunLife Stadium and will include a street parade along NW 199th Street between NW 37th Avenue and NW 26th Avenue in the City of Miami Gardens.

The parade is set to start at 8 a.m. and it is anticipated that parade participants will occupy NW 199th Street beginning at NW 37th Avenue. The eastbound lanes of NW 199th Street will be closed to traffic starting at 8 a.m. and will reopen at approximately 6 p.m. Rikki Jai, Oscar B and Traffik are among the performers set for the event.

The Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee, Miami Carnival Inc., and Broward Caribbean Carnival Inc., united last year, and hosted an event that attracted over 50,000 people on Carnival day.

`The richness and diversity of the Caribbean culture is an important part of the fabric that makes South Florida unique. We are excited about the possibilities that are ahead of us with a viable venue, renewed energy and the continued support of our bandleaders, masqueraders, steel bands and promoters. The time spent over the last few months provided us with a foundation to elevate Miami Carnival to a new level,` commented Mario Zamora, Chairman of Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee and BCCI representative.

`We are excited to finally have the opportunity to announce the venue for Carnival 2010. We thank all our stakeholders, including our bandleaders, masqueraders, steel bands, promoters and the tens of thousands of attendees who travel from all over to attend Carnival for their patience and support for this important community celebration. Miami Carnival would not be possible without their continued support.

We are committed to finalizing all plans for one of the most successful productions of Carnival that South Florida has ever seen,` added Ruthven Williams, director of Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee and MCI representative.
