What To Do In Key West for the Rest of 2015?
Key West in November means six full days of arts galore. The Key West Film Festival kicks off on Nov. 11 and lasts four days, during which attendees can enjoy meet-and-greets with filmmakers and actors, social events with fellow movie lovers, and of course, plenty of shows! It’s an absolute can’t-miss for any film aficionado! On Nov. 27, head to Old Town for live mural paintings, gallery openings, performance arts, theater, and music, all part of the annual art celebration ART! KEY WEST!
Key West is known for getting pulses racing! December 3-6, visitors can participate in the TRIKW Swim-Bike-Run in Paradise, a triathlon and expo definitely not for the faint of heart. The event is limited to 1,000 participants, so if they’re full, you can always cheer from the sidelines, beer in hand.
Winter or not, you’ve gotta party when you come to Key West! December 3-6, join the Key West Hot Pink Holidays, an LGBT holiday event featuring parties, shopping, holiday lights tours, a parade, and Christmas carols! Arriving after December 6? Don’t worry! The Key West Holiday Fest goes on through December 20, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the legendary lighting of the Harbor Walk of Lights, historic inn tours, and of course a holiday parade.
There’s no place on earth like Key West for a New Year’s celebration. The island’s New Year’s Eve Shoe Drop Celebration features locally famous drag queen, Sushi, perched atop a six-foot red stiletto. As midnight strikes, Sushi comes in for a landing, and the real party begins!
