Calle Ocho 2012 for Miami New Times.
The Little Havana Kiwanis Club sure knows how to throw a party, and some say there were up to a million people there this year.
I disagree with that estimate, but there were definitely tens upon tens of thousands; maybe a hundred.
Did fights break out? Of course. But the atmosphere was charged with a visceral positive energy.
Check out this video I produced from the event.
