Our biggest party of the year in Key West is Fantasy Fest where this year’s theme is “ANIMEted Dreams & Adventures” and it’s definitely going to be fun! The event takes place over 10 days from October 17th – 26th, 2014. We have many repeat guests that come every year for this event, and we hope to meet some new visitors this year too. Our Key Lime Inn, Chelsea House, Lighthouse Court, Cypress House, Merlin Guesthouse and Albury Court Hotel require a minimum 3 night stay for any reservations starting on October 23rd. For reservations please call 800.549.4430
We still have availability for the early event dates that start with Goombay Festival the weekend of Oct 17th and go thru Wednesday of Fantasy Fest week. We have special rates for this week and no minimums apply.
One of our favorite events is the Masquerade March on Friday night, Oct 24th. The March is a walking parade for anyone who wants to join, either in costume or not. The parade starts at the cemetery and takes two different routes to Duval Street. Luckily, we have hotels on both routes! The southern route goes past Chelsea House and the northern one goes past the Merlin Guesthouse. At both hotels we set up a bar that serves our fabulous rum punch. At Merlin, Cindy is going to make hers with a southern twist and at Chelsea House, Abby will make hers with Jamaican spices. We will have two D.J’s to get everyone dancing.
Body Painting will be available again at Chelsea House on Friday from 12-3 before the Masquerade March and on Saturday from 12-3 before the FantasyFest Parade. Body artist Amanda Stiffler will be bringing Nicole Hays along as an artist, which is really exciting, because she was just on the Game Show Networks body painting show called Skin Wars! So, we will have a celebrity available to paint you and your friends! Guests interested in setting up an appointment for body painting can call her directly 479-721-3157
All of the Historic Key West Inns are located within walking distance of the Fantasy Zone.
