Headline Goes Here

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Thousands of people are expected to pack the water off South Pointe Park for the first ever, Floatopia on September 8.

According to the organizer's Facebook page, Floatopia describes the main activity the event is known for - floating on rafts and other homemade or store bought floating devices along the coast and partying on the beach.

Floatopia started in Santa Barbara, California in 2004 and has taken place in other cities across the country.

The event was originally scheduled to take place on August 25, but was rescheduled due to Tropical Storm Isaac.

It kicks off at 10 a.m. at South Pointe Park and is free.

Bring your float, raft, inn-tube or anything else that floats!
