I made a trip last week to look at the party and where it was located and it was interesting driving in the parade of cars through dazed teens working hard at doing it right! Locally it was at Bolivar beach in an area called by the locals as the “ZOO”. Television stories showed local homeowners railing about nudity and such stuff that seems to be the makeup of the party in 1996. The only problem that I found with it was it was so cold that no one would go into the water (to lose rings) but all that activity is bound to drop some treasures.
Find out where everyone is going during spring break and have some fun of your own with a detector. I just came back from the beach with some coins and an interesting experience of looking over the things that the party leaves behind
