Mall on Duval Grand Opening Was a Huge Success! About Week 2
MALL ON DUVAL WAS LOVED BY ALL
The citizens of Key West, their guests and visitors came out in full force to celebrate the inauguration of Mall on Duval during its Grand Opening weekend Feb 15, 16 and 17. Three blocks of world-famous Duval Street was transformed into a pedestrian-only mall. It was a huge success! The weather cooperated all three nights. Key West’s newest radio station, Party 105.7FM, broadcasted remotely near Petronia Street and helped give away $200 to three lucky winners across three night plus 15 other gifts generously provided by the businesses of Duval Street.
The pilot program continues this weekend and every Friday and Saturday night from 5pm to 12am through April 26 & 27. That’s the rest of February and all of March and April.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony kicked-off a spectacular weekend. Mayor Teri Johnston and City Commissioners Jimmy Weekley, Sam Kaufman and Mary Lou Hoover celebrated the launch of Mall on Duval. The streets were crowded but comfortable, with not a vehicle in sight. It gave everybody the opportunity to slow down and talk and enjoy the evening air, friends and new acquaintances.
There was an electricity in the air on Duval Street from Fleming to Petronia. If you were there, you felt it. If you weren’t there, well…. there is always this week![livemarket market_name="KONK Life LiveMarket" limit=3 category=“” show_signup=0 show_more=0]
