KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Keys’ annual “Fantasy Fest” celebrations are winding down after 10 days of revelry.
Roughly 60,000 people gathered Saturday night in the island city of Key West for a flamboyant parade.
This year’s festival theme was “Oh … The Games We Play!” and many of marching groups in the parade wore costumes inspired by classic board games and casinos. There also was a dragon float inspired by the “Game of Thrones” television series.
According to Keys tourism officials, Fantasy Fest typically brings about $30 million in annual revenues to the island chain.
The theme for the October 2019 festival will be “In Tune but Off Key — Celebrating 40 Years of Fantasy.”
