“Pirates, Pundits & Political Party Animals” is the theme of this years Key West Fantasy Fest. We are only a few days into the ten day event and it’s already a blast!

The Key West event of the year is underway. The parties are ongoing and the people are having a ball! With costumes being seen everywhere, all day and night, you can’t be here and not now you are part of the party.

Last night I saw more people wearing plaid than ever before. The “Party in Plaid” held each year at Captain Tony’s Saloon was packed to capacity with revelers of all legal ages, sizes and genders drinking and having a great time.

There are numerous events each of the ten days of the Fest, and it does start off a little slow.  The really big events start tonight with The Hogs Breath “Homemade Bikini Contest & Beach Party”.  It’s great fun watching the ladies compete for the $1500 first prize.

Thursday really gets things rolling, but I’m going to Cowboy Bills Saloon for the “Git-R-Wet T-Shirt Contest.  It will be my first time and I sprung for a VIP ticket.  The other big event of the night is Sloppy Joe’s 25th Annual Toga Party, which always draws a very big fun loving crowd.

The last three days are the best with the Duval Street Fair, Masquerade March, Pirate Bash, Pimp & Hoe Party, Living Art Airbrush Expo, Captain Morgan Fantasy Fest Parade, Duval Street Promenade, etc., etc…  There is much more and I don’t believe anyone can attend every event.  But there’s something for everyone.
