The streets of Miami turned into crowds of celebration after Fidel Castro’s death was announced Friday night.
Street Calle Ocho was the host of this celebration for many Cubans residing in Miami for most of their lives. Cubans and Cuban-americans all gathered to rejoice. Many brought with them their cuban pride with flags, paintings and signs.
Castro was revolutionary leader who later served as prime minister and president of Cuba until 2006. He died at 90 years-old.
The joy and relief that is spreading around Miami is a heavy contrast to the mourning of Castro in Cuba.
WUFT News reporter Grace King captured photos of the celebration.
An additional 10 municipalities have joined a challenge to the constitutionality of a state law that imposes strict penalties on local governments and officials who violate a restriction on regulating guns and ammunition.
