Tom, why do you allow comments by the "the Grove sucks" / "this event was terrible" / "this is too expensive" person? They add no value to your posts and always say the same thing. Its just mindless trolling.

Just guessing here but it's probably because many people, especially long time residants, find those things to be true. Perhaps you would prefer a more highly censored site where only your opinion was voiced? I personally like a site where differing viewpoints are welcome.
As far as the event goes I'll give it a solid "meh". I was ripped off by the parking meters yet again. The "oontz oontz" music blaring over the park was kinda overbearing. Finally, near the end of the 10 minute fireworks, the wind picked up and fires from the falling debris started in and around the mangroves. . A few more feet and it would have fallen on the revelers. Bad planning that could have resulted in serious injury.
I can't speak to the daytime events because I didn't get off work till six. Truth to tell, if the bridge to Key Biscayne hadn't been closed down this year I wouldn't have bothered with the Grove. All in all I give this years celebration of the founding of our country a resounding "Meh."

What are other neighborhoods in Miami doing to make their 4th of July celebration so much better than what is being done in the Grove? Also, is it fair to compare the Grove with downtown Miami and other parts of the city that are larger and likely get more funding for their 4th of July celebrations?

I've only lived in South Florida for 6 years but I can't understand all these people comparing the Grove to what it was 20 or 30 years ago. The city of Miami has changed so much that I think these comparisons are useless.

I was surprised there were no beer vendors or food vendors at peacock park. so immediately after the fireworks were over (9:10), everyone took off. It did start raining, but had there been beer/food, people might have stayed.

I didn't see many people heading into the bars or restaurants, just packing up and leaving.

The Biltmore in Coral Gables was amazing. Free Parking and free shuttles. Greater Miami Symphonic Orchestra was fabulous. A 10 all the way around.
