November in Miami is pretty special. The leaves don’t change nor does the temperature really drop (spoiler alert: everyone’s still crowding the Miami beaches this month), but the city does take on a different, more celebratory spirit. People are embracing fall things at pumpkin patches across Miami and getting excited about the holiday season thanks to the many Christmas lights in Miami we’ll start to see this month. And we’ve only skimmed the surface. Below, a running list of November events in Miami that should absolutely be in your calendar.
