Clearly, I will become Superwoman on Saturday as I will try to do everything in the Downtown-Overtown-Wynwood-Design District area. 

Also going on Saturday is the Overtown Rhythm and Arts Festival. from 11am-6pm

The Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival, organized, planned and implemented by volunteers from the non-profit group Magic-In-Action and local leaders of the Overtown Community, aims to celebrate the rich history of one of Miami’s earliest settlements.  Magic-In-Action is Team 5 of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Miami 2010 – 2011 program.  Set on the charming main street of NW 3rd Avenue, between 9th and 11th Streets in the Historic Overtown District, this one-day annual Spring Festival comes alive on April 9, 2011 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with local food, art, and entertainment.
This year’s event will include local church choirs, the Booker T. Washington Marching Band, and local and national musical artists. Overtown Food vendors will treat festival goers with authentic BBQ and southern cooking, Caribbean flavors, and locally grown produce.
Admission to the festival is free.
