Conch Republic Independence Celebration

April 19-28, 2013

Alright, it’s kind of hokey, but it’s also a lot of fun.  Commemorating the Keys “secession” from the United States in the early eighties in protest of a Border Patrol checkpoint at the northern tip of the Keys that virtually shut down all traffic coming in, this event is worth a look if only for the annual Drag race when (you guessed it) drag queens in stiletto heels race down Duval Street!
