In South Florida, seasons are just dates on a calendar so it’s hard to know when one season ends and another begins. Sobesavvy’s South Florida Correspondent Erika LJ spent the weekend in the dynamic Wynwood neighborhood of Miami attending two premiere festivals.

One of the best ways to know when spring arrives is because you know the Sprung Spring Beer tasting festival returns Held in Wynwood this festival featured over 300 craft beers from local, national and international breweries. We Enjoyed live music, food and challenge games all day. We also learned from Miami’s top chefs in their Kitchen Lab with food and beer pairing demonstrations. The weather was warm and humid and the beer was ice cold. People came for fun and they all let loose and partied.

ElJ rested up and attended the the 3rd annual Chillin and Grillin BBQ Festival. This festival showcased a myriad of BBQ styles. Memphis, Texas, or Kansas City barbecue to Brazilian Churrasco and the well-known Argentine Parrillada style to name a few. Everyone has their favorite BBQ and this was the only place to be this past Sunday. The pit masters had a friendly competition and this event is also so family friendly they had a family fun zone with a bounce house , stilt walkers and rock climbing wall ! Those more adventurous tried their hand at mechanical bull riding ! A fun time was had by all.
