Free in mind, body, and spirit, revelers of all ages, sizes, and interests took on body paint, parades, live music, and ghostly parties. Thou does not simply wear a cocktail dress and animal ears to Fantasy Fest. People spend months planning their costumes for the Mardi Gras style parades, strutting solo or rolling out in groups of up to thirty. In addition to the overall annual festival theme, each night offers an array of themed costume parties for your selection. You can be anything your imagination conceives, and you can bet the crowd gets creative! Sitting between two beautiful, middle-aged women, having their breasts, neck, and stomachs airbrushed for full coverage — I signed up for an original world map taking over my bare back.
The event lasts 10 days and is a Mardi Gras like event that culminates the last Saturday in October with a wild costumed gala parade up Duval street. While this is a Halloween oriented event with lots of Costumes there is also plenty of body paint and nudity so it's not for the shy or prudish and is clearly an adult oriented festival. Note this is not for shy or prudish as Fantasy Fest is clearly an Adult only event. Must be over 18 to enter. Each year this street festival attracts thousands of people who come to sample Caribbean foods, arts, crafts and carnival rides as well as enjoy live music ranging from gospel to reggae.

No concern about your nude or mostly nude smiling photo landing in the hands of coworkers in the office? Or your teenagers at home finding the pics of mom or worse a friend of your kids finding "Dude is that your mom wearing We attended Fantasy Fest Before going, we looked at hundreds thousands of photos and knew the protocol.. We participated in most things but kept it very "explainable".
We managed to visit Key West during the Fantasy Fest weekend and it was awesome! The weather was Time of our lives! One of the best vacation ever.
