Spiderman, Batman, Wolverine, Pirates, Zombies and just about anything else you can think of was lined up to catch a glimpse of the Key West Fantasy Fest Captain Morgan Grand Finale Parade. The theme was Heroes, Villains and Beyond–I’m pretty sure I saw a lot of “beyond” wandering the streets of Key West during this epic event.

As promised here is a short video of the 36 hour whirlwind trip to Key West to see and participate in the spectacle that is Fantasy Fest. You’ll see myself and Shawn from Coastlines & Tan Lines hop the Key West Express ferry from Ft. Myers Beach, we arrived in Key West a short 3 1/2 hours later ready for the Fantasy Fest fun! The video is put to the music of Pirate Sessions and their song titled “Gettin Down in a Pirate Town.” It seemed only appropriate for a crazy island like this.

The Grand Finale Parade was a great experience and I’m already looking forward to next year’s Fantasy Fest. Maybe next time around I’ll spend more than just a day and half on island and taken in the other events that happen during the week.

What is your favorite part of Key West Fantasy Fest?
