Capital One Orange Bowl: December 30

Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens

College football fans take note – the Orange Bowl comes to town on the last Saturday of the year. Watch the best available ACC team to challenge the best available team in the SEC, BIG TEN or Notre Dame. It’s a game you wouldn’t want to miss, so get your tickets early for the best seats in the house.

King Mango Strut at the Grove: December 31

Commodore Plaza to Coco Walk, Coconut Grove

The King Orange Bowl may have faded away, but its antithesis stayed on to make headlines each year. Pick anything that made the news during the year and strut your funny at this whacky parade. Whether you’re on the parade or just there to cheer, it’s a fun way to bid the year goodbye. Come early for the Little Miss Mango Pageant and stay back for the after-strut party and dancing.
