Get your go-cups ready: Daiquiri Festival is back and bigger than ever this July 26 and 27.
The 2014 event will be a weekend-long, two day affair, and for the first time the celebration will include an option for those not quite old enough to indulge in boozy libations. "Snowball Sunday" will kick-off the festival's second afternoon and bring snowball vendors from across the city together to serve their frozen treats to an all-ages crowd. The afternoon will also feature activities for children and live, family-friendly entertainment.
This year's event also promises to feature twice as many daiquiri flavors and food vendors from across the city. It is situated directly in the middle a sweltering time period organizers call "Daiquiri Season" which runs between July 19 (National Daiquiri Day) and the end of September.
