Island Genn Indiana Bones Key Lime Festival 2013
Island Genn and Indiana Bones hanging out at the 1st Annual Key Lime Festival on Greene Street in Key West

This year will be Key West’s third annual celebration of the Key Lime, and it starts tomorrow, again coinciding with the 4th of July holiday. The festival includes several events celebrating the famed citrus fruit.

We have gone the last couple of years and it is a fun time. But it is hot in Key West this time of year so make sure that you and your pets stay hydrated!

Please have fun and be safe this Independence Day!! And in the midst of all this fun and celebrating, let us remember the purpose of these celebrations. I would like to say thank you to all of those that have and continue to fight for our freedoms!
