Bud Light Fantasy Fest Parade

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2022 — 7pm

Each year, the Bud Light Fantasy Fest Parade winds through the world-famous Duval Street from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. The parade is a splendid moving party with festive floats, wild walking groups, bicycle brigades, and even human-powered kinetic machines that entertain tens of thousands spectators in the premier Fantasy Fest event. With this year's "All A Daze For A Holiday" theme, you can expect to see St. Patrick who forgot his sunblock gleaming like a gold coins, Mrs. Clause letting her hair down sipping on a daiquiri, and Cupid with his binoculars and Hawaiian printed shirt ready to take in the sights of Key West. Pack your suitcase, jump on the red-eye and join us for an epic holiday experience on your holiday!
