The 16th annual Heat Family Festival got underway Sunday.
Our Local 10 photographer was there snapping pictures of the big event.
The Miami HEAT Family Festival was presented by Carnival Cruise Lines.
It featured an interactive celebration benefiting SafeSpace, the Jackson Memorial Foundation’s Guardian Angels, the Miami Coalition for a Safe & Drug-Free Community and the Miami Heat Charitable Fund.
The event took place by the Bay behind the American Airlines Arena.
The Heat players, coaches, owners and staff allowed the fans to get up close and personal today.
There were dozens of restaurants and family activities.
It was a fun day.
The beautiful Heat dancers were also there.
The kids got to play hoops and take photos with LeBron.
