Miami party scene adjusting to social distancing, curfew

MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami has been under curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. since Friday night, when curfews were put in effect. This did not stop the partying, however.

The Paraiso Bay community in Edgewater, which consists of three buildings, hosted a social distancing dance party where a live DJ played music for residents to dance on their balconies along with a live installation from artist Jared Ryan Shaw.

The idea originated from a resident and the Board of Directors’ President at Gran Paraiso Residences, which is managed by Atlantic Pacific Management.

The management company and Paraiso Bay Master granted access for an events company to bring it to fruition.

Commander Freddie Cruz of the Miami Police Department said, “Here we are at Paraiso Bay where they decided to do their part and have a concert. But not just any concert, a balcony concert where everybody is staying in place, quarantined in their apartment, while the party is on the pool deck and everybody maintaining their distance. Again, this is just another way of responsibly partying.”

Residents must stay home during curfew, except for traveling for work, medical supplies or walking your dog within 250 feet of your home.

The property will next organize a “glow stick dance party” themed event this coming Saturday.
