Miami River Commission created the Miami River Day Festival, a day of paddleboard and kayak races, boat tours, libations, and entertainment along this burgeoning downtown waterway. Food vendors range from Casablanca Seafood Bar & Grill to hot dog stands, while historic reenactments at some of Miami-Dade County's oldest buildings and live music will keep you from even thinking about the beach.
