It is a free street festival with a Caribbean carnival feel sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana. Calle Ocho is where different ethnic communities wear colors or flags representing pride in their heritage. Flags from Colombia to Nicaragua to Puerto Rico to Costa Rica and even Ireland flood the streets. Foods from different countries are usually sold, and popular music like reggaeton, salsa, bachata and merengue can be heard through the festival. In 1977 tensions among Miami’s different ethnic groups were running high. Eight Cuban-Americans, mostly from the Kiwanis of Little Havana, were trying to come up with ideas to address the situation. They considered a bicycle race on SW Eighth Street (Calle Ocho). It was turned down because the organizers feared that it would pit one ethnic group against another. Willy Bermello came up with the idea of doing something similar to the block parties and street festivals of Philadelphia. Calle Ocho was born . Most Colombians who arrived after the mid-1960s wanted to stay in the United States temporarily. Therefore, increased the number of Colombian illegal immigrants: This immigrants were of 250,000 to 350,000 people in the mid 1970s. Despite a succession of immigration laws, the Colombian population in the United States continued grow. New York remained the most popular destination. Smaller communities formed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, and Washington, D.C. and , in the 1970s, North Side, Chicago. since the 80´s, many Colombians be established in Miami (especially in his suburbs, such as Doral (Doral, Florida), Kendall (Kendall, Florida), and Hialeah (Hialeah, Florida), and the Weston (Weston, Florida) suburb of Fort Lauderdale). Initially they settle in Little Havana, the largest Cuban neighborhood, engaged, many them, in business of trade between Miami and Latin America. The area also attracted to the Colombian wealthy, who settle there to get medical care, send their children to school, and escape from social, economic, and political turmoil in Colombia. Thus, by 1987 Colombian Americans were one of the Hispanic groups that more grew rapidly in Miami. By the early 1990s, many Colombian American left the metropolitan centers for the suburbs, because to crime, and the high cost of urban living. This trend was started by first time probably in the coastal towns of Connecticut and New York. Thus, the Colombians comunities had a great growht in places as Stamford, Connecticut, Bergenline (Bergenline Avenue) and Englewood (Englewood, New Jersey), New Jersey, Jacksonville, Florida (that attracted a growing number of people from Miami), and Skokie, Evanston (Evanston, Illinois), Arlington Heights (Arlington Heights, Illinois) and Park Ridge (Park Ridge, Illinois), Illinois. Despite of this migration to others areas, the more large communities remained in New York City, Miami, and their environs. In 1990 and 1991, 43,891 Colombians were admitted to the United States, more than from any other South American country. Also, they also were for the first more important group of undocumented immigrants of South America. The 1992 and 1997 were years in which the guerrillas in Colombia increased, so nearly 75,000 Colombians immigrated to the United States in this period, many of them staying in California. http: www.everyculture.com multi Bu-Dr Colombian-Americans.html Countries and Their Cultures.
