Santa and Mrs. Claus were there. The Grinch was there. A flock of penguins even showed up.
Key West’s annual Hometown Holiday Parade on Dec. 2 didn’t disappoint. Thousands of kids and families lined the sidewalks along Truman Avenue and Duval Street, eagerly collecting the candy thrown from floats.
Local businesses, utilities, city officials, Fantasy Fest royalty, the high school marching band and countless other groups took part in one of the island’s favorite holiday happenings.
