I as at my 1st Fantasy Fest this year, good costumes, fun people, crowded and a little crazy, I've been to much crazier parties (no cars get burned at fantasy Fest, go to Backwoods Blowout and watch the minivans burn). the "Capt'n Morgan
Parade" is a cheap
knock off of any New Orleans
parade but the Peoples Parade the night before was great fun! Wandering through the streets with other pirate clad cruisers (what else would a cruiser have aboard for a costume?) and partaking in the local's libations from via booths on the street. That party is fine for kids
but if you don't want your kids
to see drunken nudity keep them off Duval St. after dark (and off teh innernets).
The street side food
in Bahama Village is great! Unless you're a vegetarian.
