Science museum and rap fans will converge Sunday in downtown Miami
Whether you’re into sharks or song, astronomy or A$AP Rocky, large dinosaurs or Lil Wayne, you’ll be rubbing sweaty shoulders Sunday in downtown Miami, where 43,000 people will converge for the Rolling Loud hip-hop music festival and the members-only opening of the Frost Science museum.
Despite the crowds clustering in Bayfront Park and Museum Park, an enjoyable and dank time can be had by all if everyone makes an effort to use public transportation, share rides, drink water and behave.
“We welcome people to downtown,” said Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat. “Even with multiple events taking place, don’t be deterred. It will be a bit of a learning experience as far as the traffic is concerned, but we have a good plan and we have plenty of manpower.”
The only road closure will be one northbound lane on Biscayne Boulevard between Chopin Plaza and Northeast Fourth Street from 6 a.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday.
