The Gables Hispanic Cultural Festival had it’s 4th annual weekend street festival in front of Coral Gables City Hall. Opening Welcome by Coral Gables City Major Jim Carson. 2013

Saturday morning Mayor Jim Cason welcomed everyone from the stage to get the Festival started then made his way up the Festival tents past a host of vibrant and expressive artists and vendors to the West end entrance, where he signed the Gracias Por La Historia canvases at the New World Mural 1513 Foundation’s tent. Mayor Cason then posed with a Conquistador helmet in front of a new mural made in partnership with Dade Heritage Trust for the Viva 500 Florida theme, by two of the original Freedom Tower muralists from 1988.

The Gracias Por La Historia canvases filled with signatures by the end of the second day of the Festival, whole families donned helmets and feathers to be photographed together in front ofthe Map mural being raffled. The signed canvases are destined for the State and Spanish archive collections for this historic milestone in our State’s history and heritage. Families put the dates of their arrival in this area, they ranged from 1866 to less than 6 months ago.

The Freedom Tower Muralists were on hand to sign posters,they were also celebrating 25 years since their New World mural was created for the News Tower/ Freedom Tower in 1988,  which commemorates Juan Ponce De Leon’s naming and exploration of Biscayne Bay and Tequesta Miami for two weeks in 1513 .

Major Jim Cason is quick to point out that sixty percent of Coral Gables residents and businesses are Hispanic in culture or influence and having the Gables Hispanic Cultural Festival is an obvious win for all.  By the time he had made his way back down the other side of the vendor’s avenue the Stage area was well warmed up and sounding out Latin beats that would vary through the weekend from folk and gypsy to Latin funk and salsa beats.. The small Merrick Park in front of Coral Gables City Hall had shade and favorite foods found from all over Miami Dade County with kids activities and cool places to sit and enjoy the stage performers.

This was a new venue for the Gables Hispanic Cultural Festival, previously at the Ponce De Leon and Biltmore intersect and park area. Their partnership with Waste Management Inc, had positioned clean trash boxes everywhere with soda and water stands never far from any point at the Festival. The Festival ran till late Saturday night attracting the usual Coral Gables Miracle Mile crowd to come across Le Jeune Ave to eat and dance, Sunday evening  the Festival ended earlier. For anyone wondering what exactly is Hispanic Culture? An invitation to walk this Festival from the West end entrance down to the performance stage and park would quickly demonstrate that  Hispanic Culture means a love for Heritage, vibrant expression with a poetic wit and a choice of tastes and rhythms that never tire the enjoyment.
