One of the most important accolades any Key West fan can win, the King & Queen of Fantasy Fest are certainly a vital part of the October celebrations. As with any awarded monarchy, campaigning for one’s crown is of the utmost importance! If you think you’ve got what it takes to wear this year’s crown, come to an informative meeting this evening, June 11th at 6pm at the Southernmost Hotel Conference Room, 1319 Duval St. Official campaigning begins Friday, August 24th, so today’s meeting is a great way to get a jump on preparations and have any questions about the process answered. As with each year, candidates whose fundraising efforts are the most successful will be crowned the King and Queen of Fantasy Fest on Friday, Oct. 19, at the official Coronation Ball, the theme of which is “Mayan Empire.”
