A sorely-missed Keys party was revived and refreshed with the launch of Grassy Flats Resort’s inaugural Full Moon Party on Aug. 12. The Grassy Key resort’s reimagined event paired several party staples from Islamorada’s parties in years past like live music, a Junkanoo parade, fire dancing – and of course, plenty of flowing drinks – with new elements, including a mermaid pool party and wakeboarding demonstration, that highlighted its family-friendly atmosphere and strong water sports ties.
“Cheers to everyone involved in an unbelievable night this past weekend,” said resort co-owner Matt Sexton. “It was one of the best parties I’ve ever had the pleasure of hosting and a great glimpse of many good times to come!”
With a large turnout of guests, plans for a second party in November are already in the works, according to Sexton.
