A lot is in store this month to celebrate Miami Beach Centennial Birthday! As Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine puts it, “This is how we celebrate!”. “The historic centennial events celebrate our legacy and mark the start of the next 100 years by increasing awareness for a global climate initiative with Miami Beach, not only rising above but leading the way.”
Signifying the city’s 100 years of history and legacy is the 100 Hour Celebration which kicked off last Sunday. There were events for fitness, elegance, fashion, food and music!
Among the series of exciting events within the week was the First Annual Miami Beach Concours D’Elegance celebrating 100 years of automotive history. It’s a gathering of quintessential cars by national and foreign collectors that’s held every year across the world. It’s the first for the city to hold such event.
A five-day Funkshion Fashion Show also commenced last Sunday with Day 1 presenting a summer swimwear collection by Colombian fashion designer Liliana Montoya. The 100-hour Celebration also included Love on the Sands of South Beach where 100 couples got married or renewed their vows at the beaches of Miami, the World Class Tennis Exhibition, the Miami Beach Food truck and music fest and TV Marathons in many different public locations.
What’s a birthday without the live music, people and a party? Highlighting the celebration is the iconic Hard Rock music festival. The event is officially known as Hard Rock Rising Miami Beach Global Music Festival 2015 with celebrity friends coming to join in the event. The star-studded line up includes Andrea Bocelli, Barry Gibb, Gloria Estefan and many more! The celebration starts at 3pm ’til midnight and will be held at the 8th Street and Ocean Drive.
Be hip for the celebration and grab your Miami Beach Centennial collectibles too. Shirts, tank tops, caps, mugs, pins, coins and more are up for selling. These are limited edition merchandise commemorative of the centennial event.
