Mango Madness

Nothing says summer in Miami better than mangos. Year after year, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden celebrates the rich variety of the so-called king of fruit with the annual Mango Festival. Lather up in SPF lotion and head over to the garden on Saturday, July 9 and Sunday, July 10, when the mangos of Hawaii take center stage in lectures, cooking demos and, our favorite: mango tastings. Because when it feels like 100 degrees out, there’s no better sensation than mango juice dripping down your chin. Admission is $25 for adults, $18 for seniors 65 and up and $12 for children 6-17. Free for Fairchild members.
