All those with poor self-esteem about their beach bodies should stay inside this weekend. The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim is in full swing with a plague of bikinis popping up from the Raleigh Hotel to the Miami Beach Convention Center and beyond.

Most runway shows are reserved for industry types and the Miami "elite" -- check out our guide to the events open to the public.

Outside the catwalk circuit, catch an affordable one-day electronic music festival in Wynwood, complete with an interactive LED dance floor.

Over at the Arsht Center, "The Donkey Show" hosts a dance party as well.

For something a little more high brow, check the International Hispanic Theater Festival lineup. Our pick? The spooky "Andre & Dorine"; it brings to mind the fantastical faces of British satirical puppet show, "Spitting Image."

Click the below slideshow for the best things to do this weekend.
