Free Events This Week in Miami: Pool Parties, Hunger Games, and Ricky Martin

Mother's Day is a costly tradition: Buying her love and staving off that bad-seed guilt takes a lot of capital. Whether you successfully brought Mom a smile or not, you'll never see that flower money again. Now that the holiday is over, you can get back to the fun irresponsibility that makes up your day-to-day. And thanks to us, you can do a big chunk of it for free. 


  • Fashion Project at Bal Harbour Shops: Join Jake Yuzna at Neiman Marcus at noon, and catch him again at Books & Books in the evening for lectures on the increasing relationship between fine art and indoor mall spaces. 
  • Purple Rain at Shirley's: Purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.




  • Splash Pool Party at National Hotel: Get wet with the ladies of Aqua Girl during the organization's annual festival. 
  • Big Night in Little Haiti at Little Haiti Cultural Complex: Celebrate Haitian Heritage Month with music from Anbyans and the exhibit "Maison Gingerbread: Haiti’s Living Architecture."

KEEP MIAMI NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
