HeatWave Funfest is an exciting five-day event series created with eclectic appeal that began in Negril, Jamaica Memorial Weekend 2001 on a local and international level. Heatwave Funfest will be even bigger than previous years. During 2003, HeatWave FunFest attracted up to 1500 people from the U.S. mainland and thousands of local residents to it’s theme based events. HeatWave Funfest will again be one of the most popular get-a-way weekend events over various holiday weekends in 2007. Strategic partnerships have enabled us to offer three times the amount of activities from previous years roster. The goal of the festival is to attract over 5,000 US visitors and over 10,000 locals through a marketing plan that will impact millions in the US, UK, Canada and the Caribbean.
This event happens Memorial Day Weekend ( May 24 – 28, 2007 ) the same weekend as Urban Paradise, so if you are ready for some serious parties all in the same city ( Punta Cana, Dominican Republic ) – Get Crakkin’!
Map Of Dominican Republic
Here is where Punta Cana is located in the Dominican Republic.
Dubbed ‘The New Cancun’ , Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is the location for the 4th annual Urban Paradise Weekend. ( May 24 – 28, 2007 ). This event is intended for the grown crowd and will be highlighted by several parties with guest DJs including:
DJ Kid Capri
All of this will be going down at the Flamenco Resort & Hotel located in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
To reach Galveston (by plane) you have to fly into a major airport in Houston, like (IAH) Bush Airport. From Houston its about a 70 mile trek south on I-45 to reach Galveston.
I was under the impression that all of the action was on East Beach (the southern tip of the Seawall), but there was nothing going on down there. The main area of cars and people were along the Seawall from 5th Street to 45th Street.
Texas pride is thick here, everyone loves to represent their hometown with hand signs, music, cars and bikes.
Several biker groups – Ready Rock Bikers (AR), Ice Cold Riders, Triangle Riders (TX) and Ruff Ryders were representing.
The crowd came to have a good time and they did. The police presence were minimal, although some did get tickets for traffic infractions. Overall the event went down without any major incidents.
For a good meal I highly recommend Landy’s Seafood House, located on the 5400 block of the Seawall. Good Food and excellent service!
The event previously known as the Soul Beach Festival* is not happening this year. Instead major sponsors the St. Martin Office du Tourisme and Orient Beach hotel properties are hosting the Soul Beach Paradise Party!
During the day, parties will be held on St. Martin’s breathtaking beaches. At night groove to the sounds of celebrity DJ’s at Soul Beach’s red hot nightclub parties.
Part French, part Dutch, the exotic island offers a myraid of restaurants, superb shopping and an array of adventures.
* This would have been Soul Beach Festival’s (successor of the Sinbad Music Festival) seventh year.

As you know Kappa / Texas Beach Party starts tommorrow and the weather looks good.
See you on the strip!
This event goes by a few names: Kappa Beach Party, Kappa Beach Fest or Texas Beach Party. Kappa has been around for 22 years now! Kappa was the second largest black spring break event in the U.S. (BCR is the largest). In recentl year (post 9-11), the crowds have gotten smaller, but those who do make the trip have a good time.
If you are planning to attend you should pick a hotel on or near Seawall Strip on East Beach.
Step shows, concerts, car shows and walking the strip is whats up during this event.
I posted a few pics from last year’s action in the Picture Gallery!
