Cuba Nostalgia” is an annual event in Florida commemorating the best of the island nation before fidel castro destroyed it.

Val Prieto at the fierce and indispensable Babalu Blog had a booth at the expo and has extensive blog reports and photos from friends and readers.

Miami Herald covers here:

Cuban Independence Day, holds a special place in the hearts of Cuban exiles. A holiday not officially celebrated on the island because Fidel Castro would rather promote milestones of his communist revolution, it stands more than anything else for that palpable emotion that often dominates Miami’s exile community — nostalgia.

And what better place to take the pulse of that emotion on the eve of Cuban Independence Day than Cuba Nostalgia, the annual convention that has snowballed into a massive weekend event with hundreds of exhibits.

For three days, the Miami-Dade County Fair Expo Center gets converted into a time machine of sorts, where the adornments along memory lane are mostly for sale. Everything from vintage Cuban currency to T-shirts of Che Guevara with a bloody bullet hole on his forehead can be bought.

Back in Washington, Hot Air affiliate Charles Ryder at Age of Hooper witnessed a different kind of nostalgia from Che-worshiping moonbats still in socialism’s thrall. He’s got video, pictures, and a massive headache. Can’t say I blame him.
