Calle Ocho 2012: Fifteen Photo Highlights From Carnaval Miami's Million-Person Street Fest

If you've ever gotten so high off guarapo that you stripped down to your g-string, draped your nakedness in a giant Puerto Rican flag, and streaked up the middle of SW Eighth Street while screaming "Tu tienes la boca grande! Dale ponte a jugar!" ... Then you might be the King of Calle Ocho.

Just see the cut for fifteen photo highlights from Calle Ocho 2012.
