It's getting close to that time of year already!
SAVE THE DATE!!!!
The River Cities Festival is April 13-15, 2018!!
You don't want to miss out on all the fun with great food, shopping, shows, live entertainment, and music (just to mention a few)! You will have a fantastic time running into old friends, and making new ones! There will be activities for every age from: Children's World, Our FIRST FestivalTeen Club (with live music and security in a separate area), as well as Live Entertainment and Music for Adults on another stage!!! The River Cities Festival is right around the corner.
Be sure to pick up a River Cities Gazette newspaper before April 13, for more information, as The River Cities Festival is on the way!
The three-day event around the Circle and along Canal Street in Miami Springs is less ten days away.
Of course, there will be plenty of multicultural delicious food and drinks, a Children’s World full of rides and games, outstanding entertainment at two stages, the Mega Reunion, Chili and Baking contests, the Dog Show, the 5K Run, and the River Ride.
Opening Night is Friday, April 13 and it starts at 5:30 p.m. and goes until midnight. After the opening ceremonies, the fun officially will begin!
DJ WiWi will be manning the stage at the east end of Canal Street with live music, salsa dancing, and more.
Saturday is High Schools Reunion Day at the River Cities Festival. It’s the perfect time to gather with old friends to share new times. The Mega Reunion for Miami Springs High School alums will highlight Saturday night but there is no reason not to plan your own reunion for that day, with the hours of operation from 11 a.m. to midnight.
Also on Saturday is the The 7th Annual River Cities Festival 5K Run/Walk at the Circle.
Pre-Registration is open now at the Community Center for $10.
Race Day Registration 6:00am-6:30am at the circle for $15.
Shotgun Start at 7am in front of the barber shop.
Raffle and refreshments for all participants to follow
T-shirts while supplies last.
Make sure to register early.

Sunday is Family Day, the perfect time for a family get together after church — maybe to taste a variety of chilies or to sit on blankets while enjoying the entertainment, or to just roam the festival grounds for bargains and brunch.
Now about those new activities I was talking about:
1) The Arts & Crafts area between the incoming bridge and
The Circle will be open all three days for the first time.
2) There will be an Antique Car Show in the parking lot behind Sabores on Saturday, and aJeep Show there Sunday. Both will be open from noon to 5pm (EST).
3) The Festival Teen Club will be in operation Friday and Saturday nights from 7-11 p.m.
We are VERY excited about the plans for the Teen Club, as the Festival Committee has always felt we needed more activities for the ages: 13-18 at the River Cities Festival. Not this time!
****Parents will be able to leave their kids at the Festival Teen Club at the west end of Canal Street without worry. There will be security, music to teens’ liking, and an area to mix and dance.
There will be an entrance fee and strict age restrictions. The Festival Teen Club will ensure the teenagers have a private, yet secure, place to go Friday and Saturday night. It is being designed by teenagers and will be a great addition to the 2017 River Cities Festival.
This is your first warning, but there will be many more on the pages of this newspaper before April 21. The River Cities Festival is on the way!
We look forward to seeing everyone there for an AMAZING TIME!! If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: 786.262.4616 or 305.887.1234!!!
