There’s no excuse to sit on the couch this weekend. Put down the remote and get out. There are plenty of free weekend events.
Like beer and dressing in costume? Don your favorite comic book character costume and beers at Concrete Beach.
Prefer art or music? Then head to either Pinecrest Gardens or Soundscape Park.
4. The Miami Flea
Spend the afternoon browsing at 2018’s first Miami Flea. The organizers have revamped the space and vintage wardrobes. Shop for updated vintage threads, art and home décor plus plenty of plants to green up the crib. Grab some grub from local eateries, a drink from Mac’s Pub, a poem written on the spot by The Biscayne Poet and listen to music by various local acts. Kids can get their faces painted and make crafts. By all means, bring along the pooch.
When: 1-5 p.m. Jan. 21
Where: 1445 North Miami Ave., Miami
6. Fine Arts Fest at Pinecrest Gardens
Lovely foliage provides the perfect back drop for this weekend’s Fine Arts Festival, and the free admission makes attending even sweeter. The juried art show is a great place to view and buy paintings, sculpture, mixed media pieces, photography and handcrafted jewelry. And what would an arts festival be without live music and food?
When: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 20 and 21
Where: 11000 Red Rd., Pinecrest
