It's that time of year again, when the "beautiful boys" and gorgeous girls take the streets for one of the hottest – and sunniest – events in Miami, the Urban Beach Weekend. Fiercely anticipated by the outgoing crowd, and more than a little disliked by those who avoid that scene, the event is underway and hot!
Tens of thousands of visitors are expected in town for Urban Beach Weekend from near and far.
Linda and Sonia Saada qualify for the “far” category: they came across the Atlantic Ocean from Paris for the weekend. The tourists say they’re here to dance, celebrate and enjoy the beach.
That, and “beautiful boys,” Sonia Saada said. She said she has her eye out for a good-looking Puerto Rican or Dominican guy.
Police have their eye out too – for any trouble. There were less than 400 arrests over the Memorial Day weekend last year, about equal to the year before.
