Masquerade March- Fantasy Fest
One of the liveliest events of the week-long celebration will be the Masquerade March on Friday, October 30, which will see thousands of masked and costumed party-goers unleashing their intergalactic alter egos through the streets to reflect the theme of this year’s Fantasy Fest – “All Hallows Intergalactic Freak Show.” The imagination of all participants is expected to run wild with costumes reflecting creatures from faraway galaxies, circus sideshows and supernatural sagas.
The popular march is free to enter and watch, starting at 5 p.m at the Key West Cemetery’s Frances Street entrance and reaching its end near the Fantasy Fest Fair on Duval Street. There will be crowds of locals and visitors lined up watching the promenade along the streets of Key West’s historic district, creating an electric atmosphere like nowhere else.
