113th anniversary of Bloomsday in Coral Gables
Miami will rejoyce in the worldwide celebration of Bloomsday, honoring James Joyce's famous 20th century novel, Ulysses beginning at 6pm at the Coral Gables Museum. Since 1904, Joyce fans have been celebrating the Irish author on June 16, the single day the novel takes place in Dublin, Ireland. The free event includes live Irish music by Paddy Kelleghan, readings and commentary by University of Miami lecturer, Barry Devine, Ph.D., and a parade led by a bagpiper and drummer to a fest at JohnMartin's Restaurant. Plus, fans have a chance to dress up in 1900s costumes, reminiscent of the era. Think Bowler hats, waistcoats, stiff collared shirts, and flapper dresses. Admission to the Bloomsday Celebration is free and open to all. The South Florida Emerald Society, Inc. and the St. Patrick's Day Committee, Inc. sponsor Bloomsday for your enjoyment. Call 305-271-2696.
