Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

With Christmas just a few days days away, holiday panic is setting in all over Miami. As you read this, people are fighting for parking spots at Dadeland Mall, braining each other over deals at Aventura, and waiting in DMV-like lines at the post office to overpay for two-day shipping.

Let's just say this isn't likely to be a stress-less week.

With ten million things left to do (and money you'll spend doing them), now's the time to take advantage of free fun.

  • Santa's Village at Aventura Mall: Let's be real -- you probably have some last-minute shopping to do, so why not see Santa while you're at it? He'll be in residence, complete with his crew.
  • Thursday

  • Rapport Family Annual Holiday Display in Cutler Bay: By Christmas evening, you'll likely be DYING to get out of the house, having had your fill of your loving family. Visit the Rapport family's epic display and thank baby Jesus you didn't have to be the one to put it up.

  • Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
