RumFest takes over Wall Street Plaza this weekend for a day of tropical debauchery


For the 14th straight year, RumFest takes over Wall Street Plaza with unlimited sampling of more than 20 different drinks. Brand ambassadors from the likes of Bacardi, Captain Morgan and Kraken are on hand to teach you a little about rum, and the outdoor stage features live reggae from bands like Hor!zen.

5-9 p.m. Saturday; Wall Street Plaza, Wall and Court streets; $20-$40;
