The Palm Beach Haitian Music and Food Festival brought the South Florida community together to promote the prosperity of Haitian musicians and restaurants. The festival took place at the Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds from 4 p.m. to midnight on July 2. This is the eighth year the non-profit, Kreole Kamp INC, has put on the event. Festival spokesperson Homere Jean said they have already started planning for next year. “We love it and we have to do it the proper way,” Jean said. “That's why we start early.”
