Fantasy Fest, known as a one of the biggest party festivals in Key West, Florida.
The first Fantasy Fest was held in 1979 and since then this fest has continually boosted the level of its celebration year after year. It is held in the last week of October month before Halloween Day. This Fest has grown to rival New Orleans’ Mardi Gras as an event drawing out-of-towners. In recent years, the number of visitors at this Fest has surpassed 100,000 people, or more than three times the population of the island itself.
In 2016, Fantasy Fest will be held from 21 to 30 October 2016.
Fantasy Fest is famous around the world for featuring a lively parade, street fair, Pretenders in Paradise, Reddy Ice Fantasy Facade, Royal Coronation Ball, Poster Contest, and a multitude of parties around town. People dress up in different costumes (at times naughty or nice) as shown in the picture. The street fair is a mile-long “eatertainment” extravaganza, featuring arts and crafts, food vendors, copious libations and costumed frivolity.
