Most events are family friendly and are ready to give a time of amusement to enjoy this autumn with fun-filled festivities.
ZooBoo: Oct. 28-29
Zoo Miami has planned activities for families and children under the age of 12. The event takes place Oct. 28-29 at Zoo Miami. Trick-or-treating, costume contests, arts and crafts, and a chance to see wild animals will be available for families to enjoy. Children will be given the chance to share their crafts with these animals as a means of being at the Zoo Miami trick-or-treating.
Miami Live Art Months
Miami Live Art Months occurs in the month of November. People from all over Miami can come down to Greater Miami and Beaches to experience live music, arts, and entertainments such as: concerts, theaters, dance performances, comedy shows, and poetry readings. There is a little of every live arts exposure for a large crowd, family or if you’re decide to go alone.
Christmas Tree Lighting at Bayfront Park- Nov. 23
The Christmas tree lighting takes place in Downtown Miami the day after Thanksgiving. There is a Christmas tree that stands 50-feet tall, illuminating the night through the holidays with its glowing, glittering, and dazzling lights. The tree’s glow-up usually occurs around seven in the evening. To accompany the tree countdown, there will be holiday music and food trucks to go around. Bring your family and take a break from the hassle of running around and doing Christmas shopping to watch the lights and stuff your face.

Many events are happening all year long, and we will make sure to keep you posted so that there’s always somewhere to have fun. Happy Halloween and Happy Thanksgiving!
