    Thursday, October 27, 2011
    Many Fantasy Fest aficionados claim that Thursday night captures the true essence of the event. Throngs of devotees have arrived and are raring to let their hair down, but the young weekend warriors have yet to invade. There is a great mix of “pay to play†private parties, open parties and the party in the street has evolved into a friendly event that goes on for over a mile. While the city fathers don’t see fit to “formally†close Duval Street, the crowd will become so large that safety demands it and at that point the atmosphere becomes much more relaxed and people chill out just a little more, if that is possible.

    Because of events like Pretenders in Paradise, Sloppy Joe’s Toga Party and the Monster Party at the Green Parrot, there will be an incredible variety of costumes from sophisticated and finely crafted works of art to bizarre little nothings. If you didn't plan ahead, a bed sheet from the hotel can serve as a fashionable toga. If that doesn’t feel right, you can always find a body painter that can make your wildest vision come alive.

    nudity is queen in Fantasy Fest

    thanks TS for the update on Key West street parties! I remember traveling in late October to Key West without even knowing it was Fantasy Fest. We never even heard of Fantasy Fest til we got there...oh dear, I can still remember the shock on my wife's face (and mine)...FanFest is definitely not for the timid or shy...nudity and sexy clothing rules!

    Fantasy Fest is wild...often called Mardi Gras on Steroids and without the restrictions.

    Weather in Key West in late October is generally warm and sporadic rain depending on the status of the concluding hurricane season. You will not find anyone in sweaters or coats for sure.

    Fantasy Fest was again wild this year with many private parties off Duval Street but still plenty of action and craziness on Duval Street itself......

    That's a bummer about the rain, but at least you had a lot of fun. :) Is it still warm in Key West during that time of year?
