April Event Calendar
Miami Beach Pride Festival
Once upon a time, this was just a small local parade. Now, it’s a week-long blowout for LGBTQ+ awareness. Join the fun at the 12th annual Miami Beach Pride Parade, complete with stunning carnival-style floats, decked-out dancers, live A-list performances, lots of glitter, and rainbow flags galore. Come out and show your support!
Miami Margarita March
Are you down for an early Cinco de Mayo fiesta in April? Tour eight of the best bars and restaurants in Miami and help yourself to a margarita at each of them! Check in starts at 1PM and then you’re free to go to whichever spot you please first. Go get your friends and get your drink on at the Annual Margarita March!
Miami Dragon Boat Festival
Want to race against some of the best dragon boating teams in Florida? Form your own local group to participate in the Miami Dragon Boat Festival. All teams participate in a 500m race, and the top teams partake in the 2K pursuit! The best part is a portion of the proceeds supports Save or Sisters Miami, a group dedicated to breast cancer survivors.
Things to Do in Miami in April
Kayak through the Oleta River State Park
You’ll find watersports at every turn in Miami, but a more unique experience is to rent a kayak through the Oleta River State Park. It’s a slice of old, unspoiled Florida waiting to be discovered, one that leads you to deserted islands and beaches you can only access by boat. It’s a true paradise. Single kayak prices start at $30 for an hour; $40 for a tandem kayak. It is located on Biscayne Bay in the busy Miami metropolitan area.
Experience the Everglades
With the weather not quite so oppressive, it’s a great time of year to visit the unique habitat of the Everglades. You can drive there for free, and if you’ve never been, catch an alligator wrestling show which will be free if you sign up for an airboat ride with Jungle Erv’s airboat tours. The gator show starts at 11 a.m. and has a new demonstration every hour until 4 p.m.! Airboat tours start at $26.50 for children (4-10), $41.99 for adults (11+). Taxes and fees will also apply.
