The Ultra Music Festival is here! During the last few months, it has created an entire debate. Most of Key Biscayne residents do not agree on having this type of event. Key Biscayne is a community for families to raise their children and grandchildren, so to have this kind of festival is not a very good example for teenagers.
On the other hand, it is the traffic jam that these events create coming in and out of the island for 3 days. That is a real inconvenience. For that reason, the island authorities are recommending not to go in and out. And try to spend this weekend enjoying Island activities.
Young people are coming from everywhere for these three days musical festival, they party hard, go wild and remember it for the rest of their lives. The main problem is the use and overuse of drugs. In the past, many ended up in the hospitals and some died. A few years ago, they had to change the age acceptance from 16 yrs old to 21 yrs old.
But for the city of Miami-Dade, this event makes millions of dollars for the city. Therefore this festival is here to stay, and Key Biscayne residents will have to make arrangements in order not to get affected by this event.
So at this point, we can only hope no major incident happens. The Teens and the Bands will have a blast.
and as for us the residents we can only take the best decision so this Festival doesn’t affect our weekend!
