An homage to the continued significance of the life and work of Cuban poet and revolutionary José Marti. Actor Ivan Lopez—dressed as Martí—will ride down Calle Ocho on the back of a white horse and distribute roses outfitted with Martí poems.
The day begins at the parking lot at Versailles Restaurant (3555 SW 8th St.), with Señor Martí getting his first cafecito in over 100 years.
Then Martí and Bacanao will ride from the Tower Theater to a small park just off of Calle Ocho on SW 13th Avenue (824 SW 13th Avenue).
Martí will read poems and distribute roses in the park.
