If you are like me, you probably thought the 2012 Miami/Bahamas Goombay Festival had come and gone in the Grove on the first weekend of June, and you’d just missed out. Well, not to fret, this year’s celebration has been moved to the first weekend in August 2-5,2012.
On the surface, Goombay is a time to party and have a good time but it’s really more than that. Goombay is a time to celebrate the contributions of Bahamians who settled in Miami and literally and figuratively helped build its foundation. I don’t know the reason for the festival’s date change but I’m glad I didn’t miss the celebration. Mark your calendar and stay tuned.
