It’s back for a seventh year in the City Beautiful! Come light your fire at the Orlando Caribbean Festival – a “Spring Break phenomenon” – this weekend. Expect to indulge in fairground rides as well as the finer aspects of tropical island life, like the best of the best of Caribbean art, food and music from performers such as Wyclef Jean, Konshens, Alison Hines and many more. Kids under the age of 8 are admitted for free, but as for the rest of the beautiful creatures in attendance – even those decked out in your full Caribbean regalia – it’ll cost you.
