In the days before Christmas1962, wrote Miami Herald reporter Luisa Yanez, "1,113 Bay of Pigs fighters captured by Fidel Castro's forces and imprisoned for 20 months were finally released to a heroes' welcome in Miami. The first planeload of POWs arrived at Homestead Air Force Base on Dec. 23, 1962. Gaunt and feeling betrayed by the John F. Kennedy administration, members of the proud Brigade 2506 were bused to Dinner Key Auditorium, where waiting relatives engulfed them with hugs at a massive reunion that made front-page news. Five days later, JFK and his wife Jackie would be at the Orange Bowl to welcome them, too."

The Serpentarium was an unusual tourist attraction
Nothing says Old Florida like the snake shows at the Serpentarium on South Dixie Highway. The building was part of the attraction, with its 35-foot-high hooded concrete-and-stucco cobra with a forked tongue that towered over the building. And presiding over the green mambas, king cobras and palm vipers was the memorable Bill Haast, snake handler and scientist, who opened the place in 1948 and charmed up to 50,000 visitors a year until he closed the doors in 1984.
