When Fidel Castro dies, Miami’s large Cuban-American community will be invited to mark the occasion in the Orange Bowl football stadium, city officials said this week. Officials said they hope to avoid a repeat of the boisterous street parties that broke out last summer, when Castro’s illness was first reported and he turned over power to his brother Raul. “People are going to celebrate, and there’s nothing we can do about that,” said City Commissioner Tomas Regalado. “All we want is a little order.” In an apparent attempt to counter reports that Castro’s condition is deteriorating, Cuban television this week aired footage of a visibly more vibrant Fidel chatting with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
