The countdown is on until Fantasy Fest 2015! This year's fest – the All Hallows Intergalactic Freak Show – located at Key West, Florida will begin on October 23 and end on November 1. The fest's annual 3wishes.com parade will wrap up the festivities at the end of the week-long celebration, as it always does.
This is 3wishes.com's 2nd year of throwing the most lavish annual parade. Last year marked the beginning of our partnership with Fantasy Fest and if you were unable to attend in 2014, our float was the main float that kicked off the parade's start. We were at the front of the line and we're ecstatic to kick off another fun-filled event for fall of 2015!
A Little Fantasy Fest History
If you're out of the loop with Key West's Fantasy Fest, here's just a little brief history. The first ever Fantasy Fest took place in 1979 and was hosted by local businessmen with a goal of stimulating business in the area. Who would have known then that it would have turned into what it is today.
The ten day festivities feature activities such as balls, body painting, costume parties, parades for pets and families, costume competitions, and even drag queen contests. These are just a few of the many activities that you'll enjoy while in attendance.
Fantasy Fest draws in over 100,000 visitors each year and is a "rival" to the New Orleans Mardi Gras. And this is a judgement free zone…the Key West Fantasy Fest welcomes couples of all types.
Costumes for All Couples
This includes His and Her Couples Costumes, his and his couples, and her and her couples. The goal of the festivities is to dress up and just have fun. Who doesn't like to dress up and who doesn't like a little fun? At 3wishes.com, we love and encourage both!!

Our 2015 Float Theme
