DETOUR — We are marching to the beat of one drummer this year with ONLY ONE MARCH ROUTE!! - Join the hugely popular Fantasy Fest tradition, known as the locals’ parade, highlighting costumes, creativity and community. The Masquerade March is a grown-up moving cocktail & dance party that begins at OLD TOWN WINE & SPIRITS 1029 Truman Ave. This moving mosaic of costumed revelers strut their wacky costumes on ONE rowdy route. The March route winds its way north for Fleming Street. The parade stops at participating guest houses, which – while supplies last – hand out complimentary beverages. When you have made your way through Old Town to Duval Street, don’t worry, the party isn’t over! Keep on partying at The Southernmost Beach Resort’s After March Concert (503 South Street), at 90 Degrees in the Shade 90’s-themed After March party at Key West Theater (512 Eaton Street), or at The Green Parrot After March party (601 Whitehead Street), where you will be serenaded by a marching ukulele band.
While Fantasy Fest encourages and looks forward to seeing the amazing creativity the march generates, please remember the march travels through local neighborhoods and costumes do need to cover all the essential bits. And, finally, please leave behind only memories, dispose of trash properly and please recycle.
