Spring Breakers were seen enjoying wet t-shirt contests, twerking and public smooching sessions as the annual party surged back bigger than ever following a two year COVID lull.
Hotels were booked solid in Miami Beach and South Padre Island, Texas swelling the population of both vacation towns with young men and women looking to cut loose for a few days of partying on the beach.
Port Aranas, a town on the barrier island just north of South Padre, is expected to go from a population of 3,000 to 350,000, according to the local chamber of commerce. One woman was seen taking part in a wet T-shirt contest there on Thursday as hundreds of onlookers cheered.
Guys in their shorts enjoyed watching ladies playing full-contact beach football toss and tackle, a sport where two people lay head to head as the crowd, sipping from red Solo cups encircles them, someone throws a football in the middle and the two vie for the ball. Whoever gets it has to run past the ‘tackle.’
