Jencarlos Canela, El Rey de Carnaval Miami.
Things are heating up in Miami as the Carnaval season kicks into full swing! Last weekend, I witnessed the crowning of the Reina of Carnaval Miami 2012 and this week, Miami-native, Jencarlos Canela was named Rey! So, I know Jencarlos is a new papa and very serious with his girlfriend, Gaby Espino…but I still have a major crush on this super sexy cantante. Plus, his involvement in my first Carnaval Miami has doubled my excitement and interest in the festival!
In addition to endless appearances and proceeding over the Calle 8 festival, as King, Jencarlos will be supporting the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana in their attempt to break a Guinness World Record! On Sunday, amidst the craziness of the festival, 287 flags representing every country in the world will be tied together to symbolize ONE WORLD. A marching band will parade down the streets of Calle Ocho to open the spectacle of flags covering 2 full blocks. Now, THIS is something I’ve got to see.
You know me, I won’t miss a beat and will be tweeting the day away! So, follow @LasGringasBlog now!
