Happy Friday! This was a short week for many of us, but the weekend is always welcome. Miami activities include a prana party (with cocktails and DJ), a barbecue and brew bash, and a celebration of all things mango.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden's International Mango Festival
It's mango season, that time of year when the tart/sweet fruit literally falls from the sky all over Miami, and we get creative with mango smoothies, mango cocktails, and mango salsa. If you really want to delve into mango mania, head to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden for its 24th-annual International Mango Festival. This year's theme is "Mangos of Cuba," which means you can try rare varieties from the island. Other mango-related fun includes cooking demos, gardening tips, mango tastings, and a mango auction. The festival runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $25 for adults, $18 for seniors 65 and up, $12 for children 6 to 17, and free for Fairchild members and children 5 and younger. Visit fairchildgarden.org/mango or call 305-667-1651.
