As prepared as South Florida was for Hurricane Matthew, the region dodged the worst of the storm and now has a three-day weekend. After the shutters get pulled down and the patio furniture put back, people are going to want to find something to do this weekend.
But with so many events canceled across South Florida, what’s there to do?
▪ The Miami Seaquarium reopens Friday, as well as the Perez Art Museum Miami.
▪ The Harvest Festival in Flamingo Gardens is still on, however, activities (hayrides, pumpkin decorating, bounce house, Scarecrow competition) will be on Sunday.
▪ HistoryMiami is still hosting a Free Museum Day on Saturday, though it has canceled its 11 Most Endangered Buildings in Miami Tour with 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.
