Key West will use any excuse to have a party or fun event. Today was day two of the ten day 31st Annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration.

With heels, wigs, make-up, and stylish dresses, some of Key West's famous female impersonators hit Duval Street for the annual Drag (queen) Race.  This group of entertainers put on a spectacular show. They always draw a big crowd and everyone had a blast. A few guys from the audience, unknowingly get pulled into the competition. It's all in good fun, and everyone has a good time.

The contestants run through the tires, in heels.

 ...then the contestant jumps in a cart....

...and is pushed by these scantly clad guys, weaving through orange cones to the finish line. 

Here is a link to one of the past year's event.
