Its baffling to us that, in a city drowning in natural water features, we rarely end up at events that take place on the water. This weekend will be different, though, thanks to the second annual Downtown Miami Riverwalk Festival. Held at the confluence of Biscayne Bay and the Miami River, the festival aims to put Miamians where they belong. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, the family-friendly event will feature a boat parade led by the Coast Guard, ethnic cuisine, face painting, clowns, strolling musicians, and your general allotment of festival-style pageantry. Admission is free and all are welcome, even pets. Call 305-416-6868 and enjoy the view.
