It’s finally here: 29th Annual Queen Mother Pageant of Key West

Everyone is invited to one of Key West’s most fun and much-loved spectacles happening May 14th, 2012. This annual fundraiser for the Visiting Nurse Assoc. & Hospice of the Florida Keys is a riotous good time– watch as La Te Da (1125 Duval St.) and Duval Street are taken over by promising potential pageant queens with a whole slew of talents! Contestants compete in comical and ever-entertaining categories such as “evening gown,” “talent” and of course, an interview to decide who will be crowned the new Queen Mother.

Doors open at 7 p.m., while the over-the-top, absolutely fabulous show starts 8 p.m. Tickets at the door are $25 per person, or call ahead to reserve an eight-person table.
