Coconut Grove Arts Festival: Intriguing Food Art (Photos)

One of Miami's most enduring events is the annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival, now celebrating its 50th year.

Each President's Day weekend, tens of thousands of people attend this world-famous art festival to purchase and ponder art in every medium and price point -- from eight-foot tall kinetic sculptures to the tiniest canvas. Also for sale are artistic pieces of jewelry, clothing, and many, many different types of food and drink.

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival continues today from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Admission is

$10 for adults, children 12 and under are free, and Coconut Grove

residents in the 33133 zip code are $5 with proof of residency.
