While most of the events inside Fantasy Fest tend to be more whips-and-chains than whimsical, today’s event spotlight is a refreshingly lighthearted one: The Pet Masquerade!
This hilarious costume contest for owners & pets is definitely one of our favorites, as it highlights the most creative costumes that our little island can come up with– and some cute critters, too! Sit back and get ready to laugh, cheer and be amazed as Fido and his human counterpart are trotted out in their costumed best. The stakes are high in this competition, with the winners gaining fame, fortune and bragging rights for a whole year.
The show starts at 5:30 p.m. and is free to watch. (If you’re interested in entering, a fee of $25 is charged) with proceeds to benefit a truly wonderful cause, the Lower Keys Friends of Animals.
Head over early to grab good seats! The Pet Masquerade is located at the Casa Marina Resort, 1500 Reynolds St.
