Fantasy Fest 2012

October 19-October 28, 2012

If you are the least bit adventurous you need to come to experience Fantasy Fest at least once in your life. Each year there is a different theme. This year’s Fantasy Fest theme is A-Conch-Alypse. This must be Conch/Mayan language.

Before we dig into Fantasy Fest 2012 A-Conch-Alypse style… you’re probably gonna plan to party like there’s no tomorrow, but don’t hurt yourself thinking this is the last Fantasy Week for civilization here in Key West — I found some dates you can mark in your calendar for the future fantasy feasts next year and the year after 2013: 10/18-10/27 and 2014: 10/17-10/26.

Have you ever been to a Halloween Party that was 10 days long? We’re talking Adult Halloween party so leave the young ones home. This is the most interesting, crazy, creative, sexy, sometimes shocking and longest Halloween party you will ever attend. Unleash your inner – who are you underneath it all? Who is your fantasy you? That’s the fun part, scared of unveiling this inner/other side of you in your hometown? Come on down – THAT’S why it’s called Fantasy Fest – you can bring out whoever or whatever you are under all those daily layers. mawaaaaah. Really – how would *you* spell it?!

Definitely not for the timid or shy.  Here’s a tip: bring an open mind, relaxed attitude, lots of body paint and costumes. This is for you adventurous one. Go for it – contests and prize money abounds.

You’ll find body painting, costume parties, balls, competitions, drag queen contests, fundraisers and the absolute highlight of the Fest – The Parade. See how many beads you can score. Show off your – whatever – you’ll get lots of beads. You could stay in town and open a bead store….just sayin’….

As an event that draws out of towner’s….Fantasy Fest even rivals New Orleans Mardi Gras. Key West grows from about 25,000 to 100,000. I think it will be more this year!! I think this year will break attendance records. Most of us need to let off a little steam about now. Yes? YES!

Pet Masquerade

Pet Masquerade

Pet Masquerade (I love going to the pet masquerade!) All the houndies and their two leggers all dressed up, and not to mention neighborhood parades for the whole family. Locals Parade, Goombay Festival, Toga Party, music, dancing, food and drinks are on the menu. Events, attractions and attractives  = ) beautiful weather, tropical breezes. With the average temps in the mid to upper 80’s you won’t have to worry about being warm enough in your costume, no matter how skimpy or nonexistent it is. Some even walk around wearing nothing but body paint…oh my…well, the stories are in fact true. No holds barred. What does that mean exactly???
