Friday night started the order of events, with check-in at the Shelborne Beach Resort and Royal Palm, Miami Takeover sponsor Barefoot Wine & Bubbly hosted a registration reception with complimentary wine. Later that evening, the kick-off party was an All-White Affair at Dream Night Club hosted Miami Takeover for a sold-out event with Dee Jay Casper and Host Crown Royal.
Saturday brought on more excitement with a celebrity event hosted by Hip-Hop Pioneer Doug E. Fresh and Bad Boys Official Great Show DJ SNS. For pictures of that event click here.
This Miami Takeover Weekend was not just about partying, it was about helping to impact a community. On Sunday 40 members of the Miami Takeover Group volunteered for a community service project known as the Miami Takeover Beach Cleanup. While volunteering, volunteers learned how the damage of plastics, trash and other debris can affect Miami Beach and the surrounding areas. The hard work of the volunteers caught the attention of quite a few vacationers who offered to join in the cleanup. The total number of trash and recyclables were stacked up in ten large bags.
After cleaning the sandy beach it was time for the finale event at Club Play on Sunday evening. DJ SNS and Doug E. Fresh returned for an electrifying Mardi Gras Miami soiree.
As the weekend came a close Miami Takeover was a huge success and poured in over $500,000 into the local economy and made an amazing impact on venues, hotels and the City of Miami Beach. Next year, Miami Takeover will return to South Beach for its fifth year anniversary.
