迈阿密嘉年华:Calle Ocho

吃过碳烤猪肉串 (pinchos)委内瑞拉饼 (arepas) 或墨西哥碎肉玉米饼( tamales)吗?这些都是Calle Ocho节庆上的食物。

佛罗里达州的迈阿密住有相当多的古巴籍美国人,每年他们都会举办Calle Ocho节。Calle Ocho (念做kye-yay oh-cho)意思是西班牙文的第八街,而且是美国境内最大的拉丁文化庆祝活动。第八街是小哈瓦那区(Little Havana)最热闹的一条街,而且也是迈阿密当地的古巴文化中心。

Calle Ocho是一个大型的街道派对,节庆举办时,整条街都会封锁起来,街上充斥了音乐、舞蹈、视觉艺术、食物及其他的有趣事物!Calle Ocho始于1978年,旨在联系各西班牙裔社群,它大受欢迎,原只预计会有10,000人出席,但活动当天的参加人数却达100,000人!这个节庆一年比一年盛大,到了现在,这项盛会已被称为迈阿密嘉年华,每年三月会连续举行二星期多。

Have you ever tried pinchos, arepas or tamales? These are some of the foods available at the Calle Ocho festival.

In Miami, Florida, there is a large Cuban American population, and every year they have a Calle Ocho festival. Calle Ocho (pronounced kye-yay oh-cho) means "eighth street" in Spanish and is the single largest celebration of Latino culture in the United States. Eighth Street is the most popular street in "Little Havana" and is Miami's center of Cuban culture.

Calle Ocho is an enormous street party, and entire streets are blocked off to make room for music, dance, visual arts, food and other fun! Calle Ocho started in 1978 to bring the Hispanic community together, and it was so popular that although only 10,000 people were expected, more than 100,000 showed up! Each year the festival grows and today the event is known as Carnaval Miami and is celebrated over two weekends in March.
