Things are getting pretty wild on South Beach.
On Saturday afternoon, Miami Beach mayor issued an emergency 8 pm curfew in an effort to get unruly spring breakers out of the beach area.
The Miami Beach mayor says the Spring Break situation has gotten so wild and out of control — the city is now closing the entire entertainment district down at 8pm. They are also blocking the bridges into Miami Beach after 9pm and only allowing locals and hotel guests in.

Despite the curfew, it did not appear that spring breakers were going to be willing to leave South Beach.

Before the curfew set in on Saturday night, a man dressed up in a joker outfit, jumped on top of car, began yelling “COVID is over baby” and threw money in the air.
