Fall is just around the corner! Tis’ the season for cooler weather, football and pumpkin-spiced everything. Sure, it’s still 90 degrees in Miami so it may be difficult to get into the spirit of the season, but as the month comes to an end and we pray for a much needed cool-down, September’s best events are just heating up.
Whether you’re looking for a food fest or good ole’ fashion family fun, we’ve got you covered with this week’s top happenings.

Don’t call it a comeback!
