The city of Coral Springs in South Florida, my home for the past 15 years, may not be as fancy as Coral Gables or as dynamic as Miami Beach but it’s a pretty damn cool city to live in. I mean, we have an art museum, performing arts center, sportsplex, aquatic complex, dog parks and, oh yeah, a Costco, Sam’s Club and Whole Foods. They also hold some pretty cool events like the annual Festival of the Arts and this past weekend’s event, WorldFest 2020.
WorldFest celebrates the diverse cultures that make up the community of Coral Springs. The annual event features ethnic foods, live entertainment, arts and crafts and fun activities for the whole family – or in my case, my mom, who was visiting us from NYC. The event was FREE and parking was just $3 (try to park for $3 in Miami!).
WorldFest took place this past Sunday and my mom and I had a lovely time on what was an absolutely glorious day. The event kicked off at 12pm and ran until 6pm. My mom and I (my daughter Miranda had to work that day) arrived around 1:30pm and caught Venezuela Danza Y Tambor on stage. I Brought my camera along and snapped a few photographs that clearly illustrate what makes this event one well worth looking forward to. Enjoy…
It takes a dedicated team to organize and execute an event like WorldFest, here are a few of them (Thank you!)
Photographs taken with the Sony A7III using (mostly) the Canon EF 135mm f/2 using the Sigma MC-11 Mount Lens Adapter (works great with the A7III and you can’t beat this lens for the price) and the Tamrom 28-75mm f/2.8. Snapped a few with the Sony 55mm f/1.8 lens and a couple with the Samyang AF 14mm 2.8.
