MIAMI SPRINGFEST 2008 CANCELLED
Radio-One, the radio conglomerate has sold it’s Miami station and therefore will not sponsor the event. We are sad to announce that the Miami Springfest for 2008 has been cancelled.
I can not confirm or deny this yet. I put in a call and will wait for a reply from Radio One. I will update this entry once I find out for sure.
Although the forecast predicted rain, the streets of downtown Miami were dry and HOT! Once again I had a great time hanging with my West Indian peoples. Which country repp’ed the hardest? This year it was Trinidad. Guyana & Barbados had a nice turnouts too… very nice girls. There wasnt as much food for sale because the police told merchants they could not sell without a permit (not even water).
Anyways, the parade was supposed to start at 9am, but it didnt begin until 2pm. I took SOME pics but as you all know Im more of a video type of person…

Miami Carnival has been an Annual Event since 1984. Within two years of its inception, it had grown from a small neighborhood festival to an international event bringing live bands and calypsonians from the islands. Inquiries came from New York and other major cities. The present Carnival, the Caribbean Mardi Gras, has become the foremost revenue-producing festival for South Florida and is the most popular Carnival in North America.
Sup Fam –
Me and the crew are back at home base after one WILD WEEKEND traveling around the East Coast to do some ‘reporting’ on what happened this year at Black Bike Week in Myrtle Beach, SC and at Memorial Day Miami on South Beach (Florida).
Numbers you ask?
Shot of Ocean Drive (Miami Beach, FL) w/Young Jeezy Conversating With The Crowd…
Well, the Miami Herald is reporting up to 400,000 people were on South Beach this weekend for the Urban Beach Events!
Wide shot of some of the crowd on Ocean Blvd (Myrtle Beach, SC) having a good time…
In Myrtle Beach, reports are estimating between 300,000 to 350,000 were attendance.
Like I said it was a fantastic turnout at both events! We took plenty of pictures and I will be adding them to the site soon.
First order of business was to get a gallery page made to showcase the pictures. I have it up but it needs a little TLC to make it look lovely.
Sidenote: There were so many beautiful women in Miami this year!

Memorial Day Miami also known as Urban Beach Week 2007 will be held May 25 – May 28, 2007 on the world famous Miami Beach, FL. Come down and mingle with beautiful people from all over the country and world. Last year over 350,000 people came and got wild!
Even though the majority of the action is on the streets, make sure you bring some cash with you because the clubs are pretty expensive during this time. The crowd is laid back and the police presence is visible but they dont interfere with the activities because they are use to bigger crowds (unlike smaller cities).
South Beach (Miami Beach, FL) has become the place to be for Memorial Day for the hip urban crowd in recent years. Each year the crowds have grown. If you are fortunate enough to attend you will definitely run into hip hop recording artists, sports stars, Hollywood stars and load of beautiful people from all over the world.
The atmosphere is more laid back and casual than other events such as Black Bike Week or Black College Reunion. During Memorial Day Miami, the attendees tend to converse, party and have more of a mature attitude.
If you can make it, I suggest you come!
