In its day the Miami Marine Stadium and the basin that it sits on was a bustling center of well documented events & history. Events like world-class powerboat events like Hydroplane, Inboard, Outboard, Performance Craft, and Stock, Modified, and Grand National divisions. It was even the film set for Elvis Presley movie “Clambake”.
It held concerts and even Sunday church services the performers would be on a floating barge that worked as a stage. Some of the performers were, Jimmy Buffet, Queen, The Beach Boys, Steppenwolf, Ray Charles, and the Miami Philharmonic, etc the list could goes on.
It was shut down in 1992 after Hurricane Andrew after there was a debate as to if it was structurally sound or not. Since then it has been the hangout spot for graffiti artist and skaters alike. Some of them have also taken the time to bring in cement to create ramps.
