As prepared as South Florida was, thankfully, we dodged the worst of the storm and now have a three-day weekend before us (well, some of us do). After you have gotten the shutters down and put the patio furniture back, you are going to want to find something to do this weekend so we will keep tabs on the events that are still happening.
Since the school kids scored a two-day school week (remember Monday was a teacher work day?), you might want to get them out of the house. The Miami Seaquarium reopens Friday, as well as the Perez Art Museum Miami.
The Harvest Festival in Flamingo Gardens is still on, however, they will only be hosting activities (hayrides, pumpkin decorating, bounce house, Scarecrow competition etc.) on Sunday.
HistoryMiami is still hosting its Free Museum Day on Saturday, though it has canceled its 11 Most Endangered Buildings in Miami Tour with Dr. Paul George (which was set for Saturday).
For those that were excited about Miami Broward Carnival, you are in luck. In an abundance of caution, organizers rescheduled the Friday events, Kings & Queens Competition and Panorama, for Saturday, which will take place at the same venue, Central Broward Regional Park. Tickets will be honored. Sunday’s event at the Miami Dade County Fairgrounds is still on.
Broadway lovers, the show will go on as your 20th anniversary season of “Rent” will still take place this weekend at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
The Arsht Center is still hosting their day-long party in celebration of their 10th anniversary, which will culminate in a concert featuring CeeLo Green, Spam Allstars and Tiempo Libre.
III Points Music and Arts Festival is still on, though LCD Soundsystem has canceled. (Thievery Corporation, however, will be in the house Saturday. Take a look at our Q & A with Rob Garza.)
If you want to head to the movie theater, we’ve got our critic’s recommendations right here. Also showing, the 70MM Film Festival at the Coral Gables Art Cinema where you can see classic films like “Lawrence of Arabia” and “2001: A Space Odyssey” in all their old timey glory.
Museum of Discovery and Science is open today with only $10 admission to see their exhibits. For $6, catch their 45-minute IMAX and Laser films.
Miami Beach Ciclovía will roll out this Sunday on Washington Avenue between 5th and 16th Streets, which will be closed off to car traffic to create a paved park for anyone who wants to bike, rollerblade, stroll, skateboard or meander Washington Avenue.
Events at The Wynwood Yard are back on: The III Points Band Boot Camp and Farmer’s Market Pop-Up on Saturday, plus Reggae Sundays and Taps & Tunes on Tuesday are all good to go.
Miami Dolphins game against the Tennessee Titans is back on for 1 p.m. Sunday.
