“This event is our opportunity to celebrate Calle Ocho style. We will also be naming the King of Carnaval Miami 2024, as our most honored traditions will continue,” said event director and Kiwanis Club member Rick Gonzalez. ““Noche de Carnaval” is an event that spans generations and continents, representing the vibrant culture of Hispanos from Latin America and the Caribbean…and allows us to help the next generation, as part of the event proceeds will help provide the children in our community with much-needed school supplies.”
