Fort Lauderdale Beach Summer Music Festival: Bikini Contest and 28 Bands

Why should the party end just because Summer is almost over? Like it or not, it's basically Summer all year 'round in Fort Lauderdale, and we never need an excuse to party. We'll do it whether or not we're still in a manic frenzy just outta the crazy house, our boob job has yet to heal, or it's Christmas Eve and the kids are at home crying for Santa. This is Fort Lauderdale, and we shall party!

Fort Lauderdale Beach Summer Music Festival took the cue and is setting up shop with live music and a bikini contest next Sunday before noon. The festivities at Da Big Kahuna in Beach Place don't end until Monday morning, either. Well, 1 a.m. Monday morning. This isn't Miami Beach we're talkin' here. We get started early.

We spoke with a few of the musicians about their opinions on this pin-up style bikini contest and what they're looking forward to at the fest.
