Yes, this Saturdays Captain Morgans Fantasy Fest Parade on Duval Street in Key West is a healthy distance from Broward or Palm Beach, but is a few hours really so far to drive for hordes of shirtless women with butterflies painted on their boobs? We think not. Especially when the theme for this year the 30th Anniversary of the event by the way is Villains, Vixens, and Vampires,and the grand marshal is Playboys Bridget Marquardt, of Girls Next Door fame. Expect the fifty gigantic homemade floats stretching from White St. to Front St. to be plastered with exotic sights galore, in keeping with the unwritten rule that all Fantasy Fest events be awesome.
The festival as a whole began last Friday (Oct. 23rd), but tonight is the main night. Get out on Duval at noon if youre hardcore; otherwise, Marquardt kicks things off at 7 p.m. The parades free but if youre going down to Key West, we imagine youll be spending cash on other things. Call 305-296-1817, or visit fantasyfest.net.
