Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by two cruisers on August 20, 2006

Every night Key West celebrates the setting of the sun. We wandered down early and found the plaza empty so decided to have supper first. By the time we finished eating and settled the check we found the square so packed with people we couldn’t see the water let alone the sunset! Thanks to the invention of digital cameras, I was able to hold the camera above the heads of the people around me and look in the LCD view finder…and watch the sunset. It wasn’t a spectacular one and we didn’t see that fabled green flash.

The party atmosphere was fun. People were just there for a good time. The art work and crafts for sale varied in quality as did the routines of the street performers. After sunset the crowd wanders up Duval street in search of liquid rewards for their arduous labor.
