Miami Carnival time is here. If you're not familiar with the festival, just know this: They don't stop. It's not a party, or even a series of parties -- it's a party marathon. If Miami Carnival was a U.S. president it would be called Drinkard Fillmore. Check out this slick video ad to get info on one of the many Friday night bacchanals (Miami Vice at the Ice Palace on 14th Street and North Miami Avenue; Fay Ann Lyons, Bunji Garlin, Beenie Man with a live band, and more) that lead up to the Sunday Carnival at Bicentennial Park.
