Bay Skate at Bayfront Park
It's time to break out the roller skates again, Miami. Brothers and creatives Alex and Marcos Macias are bringing the Hot Wheels and Super Wheels nostalgia of their childhood back to the bay for their third installment of Bay Skate, sponsored by Zignum Mezcal. This Saturday, Bay Skate will take over Bayfront Park. Super Wheels will be onsite around the fountain to provide skate rentals, entrance tickets to its South Miami location, and floor guards to keep skaters safe. Zignum Mezcal will be on hand with cocktail tastings, and skaters can also partake of craft beer, food, and live music. The brothers expect a major turnout: 10,000, up from 2,500 at Bay Skate's first edition.

Jazz at MOCA
8 p.m. Friday, free
Cuban-born drummer Ignacio Berroa will take the stage at this month's iteration of Jazz at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. Sit under the stars and watch Berroa perform, plus roam the museum's galleries, which will be open by donation.

Viernes Culturales at Maximo Gomez/Domino Park
6 p.m. Friday, free
Visit Little Havana the last Friday of the month, and you’ll find yourself transported by a rhythmic, cafecito-fueled spectacle. This month’s edition of Viernes Culturales is a prime example of why the folkloric event has become popular with visitors; it’s a festive cacophony of music, art, and frosty tropical libations that loosens hips and inspires revelers to join impromptu conga lines during the raucous Calle Ocho block parties.

Every last Friday of the month, the local watering hole puts on an energetic performance of music and dancing, with a main show for locals and tourists walking Calle Ocho at 8 p.m. and a followup finale on the Pineapple Stage at 9 p.m.
