Miami is set to celebrate Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián (San Sebastian Street Festival) – a yearly festival celebrated in Puerto Rico which Miami has adapted in the past years. The fiesta will include entertainment, artisans and typical island and Latin American food starting at noon. Artists scheduled to perform so far are some of Miami local talents: Lefty Perez, Melina Almodóvar, Melina Leon, Giselle Tavera, Tito Puente Jr. and DJ Phred. And to give it a more typical island feel, plena groups, trovadores and cabezudos not only will bring back memories for those no longer living in Puerto Rico but also share with other nationalities the roots of Puerto Rico’s music. It will be Plena del Mar, Plenatarium and Fórmula Jibara that will have the honors to perform the island favorites for the attendees. Serving as hosts and presenters this year are singer Melina Almodovar who will also perform, Miss Mundo Puerto Rico 2012 Janelee Chaparo, actor and model Gustavo Juarbe, producer Gigi Diaz and CNN’s collaborator Erick Cuesta.
