Headdress Ball to Bring Mardi Gras Vibe to Key West

Key West's 38th annual Headdress Ball will take place on Saturday, Feb. 26 at the open-air Coffee Butler Amphitheater at Truman Waterfront Park and will feature contestants showcasing their original masks, cowls, bonnets, and other headgear. The ball is produced by the Key West Business Guild and serves as a major fundraiser for it.  In past years, some entrants have incorporated choreography, sound, and light shows into their presentations. The event offers spectators a unique blend of entertainment and imaginative pageantry.

Tickets for the ball can be purchased online. General admission tickets are $30 per person, with chair seating $35 per person and reserved tables for four people starting at $280.
