Week on the Island’ is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends
about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those
parts that are lies.
Rain all week. The skies cleared Friday and it turned into a beautiful day for
the Locals Parade on Friday and for the Fantasy Fest Parade Saturday night.
week I finished reading ‘Skink No Surrender’ by Carl Hiaasen that I started
started last weekend with Goombay in Bahama Village and then Sunday we had the
Zombie Bike Ride from the airport to Duval Street. Lots of parties all over
town all week for Fantasy Fest and then the skies cleared for the Locals Parade
on Friday from the graveyard to Duval Street. Saturday was lots of crazies on Duval
Street with the Fantasy Fest Parade on Saturday night. It will be good to slow
down (get rid of about 70,000 people and exchange them for 3,000) with the
Parrot Heads next week. After that is big money week with the Off Shore Power
and the Junkanoos https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10204395721468543&set=vb.1095820518&type=2&theater
