Miami Insomniacs Have Something to Look Forward to Every Year

The City of Miami hosted the second annual, 13-hour Sleepless Night art extravaganza this past Saturday. The exhibit is a definite departure from the standard bar scene late night venue and boasts a plethora of art installations, exhibits, galleries, and dance and music performances. The event began 6 p.m. and completed 7 a.m. Sunday. The event was intended to be easily navigated and to ensure this the city was split up into 4 areas with about 80 venues in total. This year the city also called for more buses for the convenience of event goers. According to event planners from last year, the number of interested onlookers did increase. More than 100,000 patrons visited the event despite heavy winds and some cancellations due to safety precautions. For more information on the event, please visit
