Who needs Miami! Spring Breakers turn Fort Lauderdale into their new party capital as thousands hit the sand on St. Patrick's Day weekend - as judge denies request from South Beach nightclubs to lift

March 18, 2024

Spring Break students have declared Fort Lauderdale as the 'new Miami' after a judge threw out a lawsuit filed by three South Beach nightclubs to lift the midnight curfew. Mayor of Fort Lauderdale Dean Trantalis has welcomed the students with open arms, saying: ‘We want you to come back next year. Spring Break last year saw 488 arrests in Miami Beach, more than 230 of which were felony offenses, and more than 100 firearms were seized. But Fort Lauderdale PD has taken a different approach to many of their colleagues across Florida – by trying to recruit the college students. Last year, the former Miami Beach Mayor said he wanted to cancel Spring Break after fatal chaos broke out on more than one occasion.
