Happy Birthday to the Conch Republic

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

It was on this day back in 1982, when Conch Republic established itself after border patrols were set up on the mainland of Florida, isolating Keys residents. The residents of the Florida Keys revolted, established their own country with a flag, form of government and then immediately applied for foreign aid.

This independent spirit continues today and we celebrate it with nine days of events. This evening an old favorite is coming back, the seven foot Key Lime Pie. The fun begins at Mallory Square at 5:30 and is a benefit for the Key West Memorial Sculpture Garden which honors many of the republic’s famous and not so famous citizens.

The Blue Angels

This past weekend Old Town Trolley Tours of Key West was a sponsor of the Southernmost Air Spectacular held at the NAS Boca Chica. The headline group was none other than the Naval Flight Demonstration Team, more commonly know as the Blue Angels. Our own Chris Belland and Linda Test were at the opening event where they were presented with a sponsorship plaque for Navy officials. They also go to mix and mingle with various flying groups both civilian an and military.
