(Miami Beach, Fla) - Dozens of people gathered for a drum circle on Miami Beach Sunday despite a ban that just went into effect prohibiting the noise.
Even though Miami Beach police officers were present to enforce the new ban, a drum circle gathered at South Pointe Park. Miami Beach officials say the performances violate rules for special events which require permits, and they got lots of complaints from local residents.
The city offered the drummers the option to perform at the 10th Street Beachfront, but community members say the ban violates their civil liberties.
No word yet on what the penalties will be for the drummers who showed up and defied the ban.
