Drag Races at the Key West Conch Republic Festival

In April we traveled to Key West for the annual Conch Republic Festival, and we were very excited to watch the drag races.  The drag races start in the afternoon in the 800 block of Duval Street with time trials, and each queen runs the course, complete with a dash in a Home Depot shopping cart.

The drag queens arrived on a Conch Train to the delight of a waiting crowd who braved the Key West heat to watch the time trials.  After time trials, the pits were open, and the final races took place later in the day.

More pictures from our latest Key West trip coming soon!

Happy Travels!
