This does not happen any other holiday weekend. BUt during that week :confused::confused:

Why you may ask, just do a search fro Miami Beach and that weekend. This is what we put up with Ocean front highrise South beach and the property is in lockdown.
We won't even rent ours out just for that week. We are lucky in that we have someone leasing for 3 months that cover that mess.
YOU will note they say thousands for the weekend. What they don't say is the key. Thousands decend for other weekends holidays and they are not a challenge.
4th of JUly week and labor day week are very enjoyable!



ALL OWNERS AND RESIDENTS


The Memorial Day Weekend is quickly approaching. As most of you are aware, that weekend is a very challenging weekend in Miami Beach due to the thousands of people who descend upon the city for the weekend festivities.
Security and building access will be a priority that weekend and the Board of Directors and Management need your help and cooperation to remain incident free. Below are reminders to take into account to help make the weekend safe and bearable.
1) SECURITY: Owners are a critical part of building security. Please keep security at the front of your mind. If you notice a security issue, please do not keep it to yourself but rather inform management or building security. Also, please do not allow anyone that you do not personally know, to tailgate behind you into the garage and other building doors.
The building will have additional security staff on hand to deal with the crowds and other issues. The additional staff will not be as familiar with our owners as our regular staff. We ask for your patience & understanding if these personnel do not recognize you and request positive identification in order to allow you access to the building as they are doing so for your benefit.
2) GUEST REGISTRATION: Per the Association Rules & Regulations, all guests must be formally registered no less than 4 days prior to the arrival of the guest(s) and the registration must be received by management during business hours (weekdays 9am-5pm), not after hours or on a weekend. Please note that Management will be strictly enforcing this rule. The last day that any owner may authorize a guest to arrive for the Memorial Day Weekend will be Monday, May 21st - no exceptions. Any guests who are not registered or arrive unannounced will be denied access to the building.
3) LEASE REGISTRATION: Per the Association Rules & Regulations, a complete lease packet must be submitted for approval a minimum of 5 business days in advance. The last day that an owner may submit a lease packet for a lease starting Memorial Day Weekend will be Friday, May 18th. For leases that are a rush there is a $50 additional rush fee that must be paid and that "rush" will be processed within 1 business day of receipt of a completed lease packet. In no case may a tenant be approved or move into the building with less than 1 business day notice.
4) STREET CLOSURES: The City of Miami Beach will be closing Ocean Drive. Collins Avenue will be open to only northbound traffic and Washington Avenue will be open to only southbound traffic after 7pm. A DUI check point will be on eastbound lane of MacArthur Parkway Fri. 8pm to Sat. 6am. Based on the honor system, Miami Beach residents can use the Venetian Causeway. The City will also be making unannounced street closures as they deem necessary. Please keep this in mind (as well as all of the other inherent traffic issues of the weekend) when you make your travel plans.
5) BEACH ACCESS: The beach access gate will be completely closed off daily from 7:30pm to 6:30am each day for that weekend. All owners and guests must access the building through the front lobby during those hours. Please remember proper attire when entering the building is required.
6) RECEIVING GATE: The Receiving Gate will be closed for contractors, moves, deliveries, etc. from 3:00pm Friday, May 25th and will not re-open until 9:00am Tuesday, May 29th. During this time, there will be pet & bicycle access only. Routine pedestrian traffic will be required to enter through the main lobby.
Thank you all for your understanding and anticipated cooperation during this weekend and please do not hesitate to contact the management office should you have any questions.
Management Office & Staff

Gosh Luv you complain about the oddest things, at times.
Obviously these people are heading South to decorate the graves of the many, many brave men and boys who answered the call to save the Nation from the terrible Southern aggression and oppression.;-)
 
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication "To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead" (Source: Duke University's Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920 <http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/award97/ncdhtml/hasmhome.html>). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it's difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860's tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

Yeah, Owners are being urged to go into lock down. It is not odd to throw a fit that residents can't enjoy their property for fear and when the building issues these kind of warnings there is a serious problem that won't be adressed.
AS I said it is a holiday weekend but both the 4th and labor day weekends this does not happen. Those are happy family friendly holidays.
The simple fact that the residents must either leave all together or hide in their home is pathetic.
Normal simple polite stuff is being banned so to speak. It is normal to hold the beach doors for the person behind you who may be juggling chairs, kids etc. Now the warning is do not do that.
