Mango Mania at International Mango Fest This Weekend at Fairchild Gardens

Categories: Happening
The annual blow-out festival celebrating the mango, including the popular Sunday Mango Brunch, is this weekend at Fairchild Gardens in Miami.

Be very British and wear a raincoat - the only proper way to eat a mango - since there will be a vast variety of the tropical fruits representing those grown around the world available for tasting.
