Mar 26, 2017 March 26, 2017

Spring’s in full swing, and you should be too! There is a big bunch of events happening around town that will definitely get you up and outdoors. From kid to foodie, corporate and LGBT friendly, there’s an event for everyone to enjoy this spring. I’m especially excited, since I get to compete with my favorite people at Team HB Roswell Realty at this year’s Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run. Hope to see you there!

So, here’s looking at the top events you can enjoy in Miami in April 2017:

1. Miami Open ~ April 1 & 2
Key Biscayne
Okay, so this one started last month, but it definitely deserves a mention, since this is the last chance to catch your favorite stars in action. Great tennis, glorious eats, gorgeous weather and an even more gorgeous gathering of celebs and people makes the Miami Open a must-see for every sports fan out there. Check out tickets and packages, here.

2. Miami Riverday Festival ~ April 1

3. Sprung! Spring Beer Festival ~ April 1
RC Cola Plant, Wynwood
Gear up to get Sprung! with craft beers from around the world wooing you. Over 300 local, national and international craft beers will be waiting for you to kick springtime fun into action. Not your run-of-the-mill beer tasting, this festival is all about celebrating the craft beer lifestyle with lots of food, fun and games. There will also be a Kitchen Lab for those who take their suds seriously, where you can learn how to pair your food with the right cold one and get the most out of it.


 
4. South Beach Triathlon ~ April 2
South Beach
If winter was the perfect excuse to pack on the pounds, Miami certainly knows how to knock them off too. Choose between charting the International Course with a .93-mile swim, 24.25-mile bike race and 6.2-mile run or the Classic Course that includes a .5-mile swim, 20.7-mile bike race and 4-mile run.

And, if you plan to compete in the South Beach Triathlon plus the Mack Cycle Escape to Miami Triathlon, you are eligible for The Life Time Tri Miami Challenge, the proceeds of which will go towards ‘Save The Children’. However, you don’t need to be a fitness freak to enjoy the South Beach Triathlon, as you can turn up to cheer on your dear ones too.

5. Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival and Parade ~ April 7-9

The Miami Beach Gay Pride is a fun, colorful festival and parade that will compel you to “come out” and enjoy! Embrace and show your support for the LGBT community during this three-day fest with a beach party, parade, cruise, live performances, parties at the area’s nightclubs and a family-friendly play zone to keep the fun vibe going.

This year’s honorees include TV personality Ross Matthews as Grand Marshal, celebrity bartender and cast member of “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” “Uncle” Johnny Pool as Advocate Marshal and activists Liebe and Seth Gadinsky as Ally Marshals. You can further show your support by raising the Rainbow Pride Flag atop your building.

Sapporo Festival.

11. The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run ~ April 27
Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami

Our favorite event of the year is back. Why is the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run our favorite? One, because it doesn’t start in the wee hours of the morning. And two, because we, Team HB Roswell Realty, get to participate too!

Yes, we’ll be at this 5k run/walk after work, participating and having fun at the biggest office block party there is. Whether you’re coming to compete or cheer us on (which we’re counting on you to), hope to see you there!
