$4 for One Ticket to the Redland Blues & Barbecue Festival ($8 Value)

On April 20 and 21, local vendors set up booths across Fruit & Spice Park to celebrate the annual Redland Blues & Barbecue Festival, which combines the spicy taste of barbecue with the sweet sounds of live blues and country-music performances from such acts as Iko Iko and The Pitbull of Blues Band. Families can enjoy a variety of youth activities, such as an interactive childrens' zone, sponsored by Homestead Motor Speedway; a guided park tour; and sample the barbecue, fried cheesecake, and freshly roasted corn on the cob from local vendors. Children younger than 11 are admitted free. The Redland Blues & Barbecue Festival takes place on Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday. April 21 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and is sponsored by Miccosukee Tribe of Indians, FL, Budweiser, and Commissioner Lynda Bell.

The Fruit and Spice Park

As you stroll across Fruit and Spice Park's grassy fields, an occasional piece of fruit falls from a neighboring tree. But it's not an apple or a berry you can easily find in a local supermarket—rather, it may be a specimen native to the Caribbean or South America, its shape foreign to your teeth, which want so badly to bite into its juicy flesh but aren't sure how. At Fruit and Spice Park, seasoned gardeners grow abundant specimens from tropical areas around the world, including 70 kinds of bamboo, 15 types of jackfruit trees, and edibles such as Fiji longan and jaboticaba across 39 acres.

Visitors meander freely through banana groves and African baobab trees, and they can also follow a guide during tours to learn more about plant species and which fruit seeds bear an uncanny likeness to Abraham Lincoln's silhouette. Throughout strolls, guests may help themselves to any of Mother Nature's home cooking that has naturally fallen to the ground, including mangoes, dragon fruit, and papayas, or venture to the tasting table at the entryway to sample the season's bounty.

Park staffers also gather visitors for a range of events such as stargazing, outdoor festivals, and plant-use tutorials, where they divulge helpful information such as which plants are medicinal and how to play dead during tree attacks. During regular park hours, chefs at the Mango Café pile plates with casual fare, often using the park's own fruit and vegetables, and the gift shop lets guests bring home harvest jams and aromatic teas.
