This weekend, more than 125,000 people are expected to flood the streets of Downtown Coral Gables for the annual Carnaval on the Mile. There will be music. There will be food. There will be art. But most importantly (after the food because that’s always the most important thing), is the sidewalk sale by local Miracle Mile boutiques. And I will be shopping.

Your favorite Miracle Mile boutiques are putting the s-a-l-e in sale.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Mile’s boutiques, specialty shops and even Actors’ Playhouse (special ticket prices if you buy during the event) are setting up outside and reducing some of their finest and most covetable goods to super sale. Grab a beer from the Heineken stands and surf your way through racks set up in the fresh air.

At Dominique Boutique (up to 80% off, $20 shoes, $30-$60 sports wear) and Daisy Tarsi (cocktail dresses and designer gowns on major reductions) you can find the perfect gown for that daunting black tie event on your calendar. Get your beauty staples at discounted prices at GBS The Beauty Store where you’ll get 10% off your entire purchase plus some additional perks. I know I’ll be stopping by to sweep up some new nail polish, because with spring around the corner and hot weather already here, I’m ready to transition to some bright colors. Speaking of spring style, I can’t resist a stop at I. Designs for the best sunglass selection in town. They’ll have a killer 50% off sale going on which will probably tip those Miu Miu glasses into must-own territory.

My guess is I’ll have so much stuff, I’ll have to go home and drop it all off and then head back in time to catch some of the concerts… oh, and some more food of course. Who can resist that carnival booth grilled corn?
