The festival celebrates the whole Caribbean and the descendants who may have not been born there. Along with a place for kids to play games, there will be a basketball tournament, which starts at noon. More than ten teams from the Caribbean and the U.S. will compete.

There will be food and music and cheer from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday at Miramar Regional Park (16801 Miramar Parkway, Miramar). Tickets cost $20. Visit vifest.com.
