Lots of music and art at North Beach festival

The spotlight will be on North Beach next month when a popular festival comes to Ocean Terrace.


Live music, bungee jumping and face painting. That’s just some of the activities on tap at the 35th Annual Coldwell Banker Miami Beach Festival of the Arts.

The North Beach event takes place on Feb. 7 and 8 at Ocean Terrace, a sliver of land facing the beach between 73rd and 75th streets. It is organized by the city of Miami Beach and the city’s Fine Arts Board.

Between 30,000 to 40,000 people are expected to attend the free event, said Max Sklar, director of Miami Beach’s tourism and cultural development department.

Daniel Veitia, a North Beach activist, said he was excited because the festival gives South Beach residents a chance to appreciate what’s in his neighborhood.

”It’s a staple event where other residents come to North Beach,” he said. “For many of them, it’s the only time they come up here.”

New this year: daytime musical concerts at the North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave.

Veitia said the music is a product of a partnership between the city and the North Beach Bandshell Trust.

Five local artists will perform.

The lineup for Feb. 7 includes Maximus 3000, a Miami-based disc jockey, remixer and experimental artist; SuĂ©nalo, a band that blends Afro-Cuban, Latin, R&B, rock and hip-hop rhythms; and Very Normal People, a pop band that performs songs from the 1980s and ’90s, as well as recent hits.

On Feb. 8, there will be performances by Maximus 3000, Conjunto Progreso, a Cuban music group; and the Spam Allstars, a band whose music features Latin, funk, hip-hop, turntables and electronic elements.

The festival also showcases the work of 150 artists who will display their paintings, sculptures, photos, ceramics, glass and jewelry along Ocean Terrace.

Children will be able to play in fun houses, create arts and crafts, go rock climbing and bungee jumping in a zone set up for youngsters.

”We try to provide a variety of different forms of entertainment to attract people and keep them coming back,” Sklar said.

PRESS: Miami Herald Reviews Spin-A-Thon

Miami Herald Reports on Spin-A-Thon. Featuring DJ Maximus 3000 Spinnning live sponsored by 8025 Alliance Music Group, UM Sylvester comprehensive Center and Metamorphecise Spa & Gym.

Get fit and fight cancer
Special to The Miami Herald
Seventy stationary bikes for spinning will be used to help find a cure for cancer.

”Our job is to raise money, and we’ll spin to get the job done,” said Jay Stone, general manager of Metamorphecise Spa, Salon & Health Club in Pembroke Pines.

The spa at 111 Grand Palms Dr., owned by Miramar resident and fitness expert Lisa Dwoskin-Woityra, will host a Oct. 17 nighttime spin-a-thon for the Braman Family Breast Cancer Institute at the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Dwoskin-Woityra said she was inspired by her father’s Dwoskin Family Foundation, which has given $1 million since 2003 to the cancer center for lymphoma research. But she was driven to action by her mother’s recent diagnosis of breast cancer.

”It makes me happy to make my mother happy,” Dwoskin-Woityra said.

So far, 20 spinners are signed up and $10,000 has been raised.

Personal fitness instructor, bodybuilder and model Anna Level will lead the spin-a-thon. Spinners from other health clubs, such as Fitness 21, may turn out for what could be a fitness showdown.

The cost? A $50 donation or the same in pledges. The theme: “Supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors, honoring the taken, never ever giving up hope.”

Dwoskin-Woityra said the four-hour outdoor event also will include a free health and fitness fair with about 40 vendors, a Chinese auction featuring high-dollar gifts, and hobnobbing with glitz-and-glamour celebrities.

Guests can graze for $10 a person at a buffet of high-energy fun foods. Stone said the entire event, with belly dancers, hip-hop performers, a bounce house for kids and tunes spun by South Beach DJ Maximus 3000, will amount to a huge community party.

”Coming together for a common cause is cause for celebration,” Stone said.

The spin-a-thon will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 17 at Metamorphecise Spa, 111 Grand Palms Dr., Pembroke Pines. Call 954-450-5535. ”
