A Different Halloween on Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road:

Usual large crowds will be discouraged

It will be a very different Halloween on Miami Beach's Lincoln Road this year. Due to the pandemic, the usual large crowds “will not be encouraged,” according to Lincoln Road Business Improvement District (BID) Executive Director Tim Schmand. The BID laid out plans at a meeting of Lincoln Road merchants this past week. In an email to RE:MiamiBeach, Schmand wrote, “The plans preclude popup bars at street ends and DJ performances on the side streets.”

He also noted, “Miami Beach PD is reviewing the possibility of one-way traffic on the north and south side of Lincoln Road.”

To encourage social distancing, “Restaurants/cafes may be required to use stanchions to separate the pedestrian path from the diners” and to discourage gathering of crowds, “Lincoln Road cross streets that had been closed in the past, will not be closed this year.”

Schmand said, “Miami Beach Police will have a significant presence on Lincoln Road” and he emphasized, “Curfew will be enforced.”
