Masquerade March at Fantasy Fest

The Masquerade March is by far the best event at Fantasy Fest, Key West's annual mad and crazy party. The best thing about Masquerade March is that it features you.... visitor or local alike you are the march, you are the event - all 5000 (or more) of us. Don't be a boring spectator - get dressed up and be part of the fun.

p.s. it's not really a March - it could equally be called the People's parade, or the Masquerade walk, stumble or dance.

The 2016 Masquerade March in Key West is on Friday 28 October.

The route is through Old Town from one guest house to the next (i.e. from one free drink to the next), and ends up on Duval Street.

This year I will be live blogging on this blog post the build up and then will have loads of pictures the next day. I can't blog during the March because I will be marching myself.

But here's the thing: it's a masquerade: a false show, or pretence, being someone you are not. Or, in simpler words, fancy dress!

Get your fancy dress thinking caps on. Almost everyone dresses up, in a thousand different outfits.

It's excellent!

This blog will be regularly updated nearer Masquerade March time, so come back then for lots more.

See you in just under 2 weeks!
