Bring your cash and pick your fastest pilchard. Key Colony Beach Day returns this Sunday, March 5.
The 66th anniversary of KCB’s incorporation as a city will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the city’s 7th Street Park. The day will include live music by Papa Pete, David Quick and the Rick Lieder Band, food, nearly 100 vendors and the infamous “barracuda” races and Zonta Club rubber ducky races.
For the first time ever, the 2023 event will also feature a “Pooch Promenade” and costume contest. With donations accepted to benefit the Marathon SPCA, dogs and their handlers may register at the corner of 7th Street and Shelter Bay Drive between 11 and 11:15 a.m. for the 11:30 a.m. parade. Prizes will be awarded for the best costume, best handler and dog combo and best “Keysy” spirit.
The event is presented by the KCB Community Association. Admission and parking for the event are free, and the day is open to the general public
