What Was Mayor Regalado Doing at The UnderLounge Festival?

Helping the kids toss a few basketballs! The UnderLounge Festival took place on October 15 at the Brickell Backyard portion of the future Underline Linear Park. With the “world’s longest mini-golf hole”, a pop-up dog park, music, fitness, street artists and, of course, the basketball-playing Mayor, the UnderLounge Festival was crowded with curious neighborhood residents. Check out some of the highlights:
