Lower Keys Fluffers are prepping for Fantasy Fest Parade

Fantasy Fest 2022 kicks off on October 21, but costumers and creators are already deeply immersed in preparations for this year’s “Cult Classics & Cartoon Chaos” themed extravaganza. For more than 10 years the Lower Keys Fluffers have been designing and building elaborate theatrical floats for the Bud Light Fantasy Fest Parade, accompanied by marching groups that typically number at about 100 costumed characters. Pictured here, three of the Lower Keys Fluffers team, left to right, Jeff Carr of Marathon, Caitlin Lustic of Big Pine Key, and Brittany Burtner of BPK, dye costume pieces in preparation for their “top secret” 2022 Parade entry. Presented in part by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, for complete details and to fill out your own Parade application form, visit http://www.FantasyFest.com/Parade. (Photo: Carol Tedesco/FantasyFest.com)
