Tooting Your Own Horn

Key West is known for all things Conch. If you are born here, you are a Conch. If you live hear for seven years or more you’re a fresh water conch. Our signature dish is is the conch fritter, the local football team are called the Fighting Conchs and the drill team the Conchettes. We live in the Conch Republic. In addition to providing us with delicious food, if you cut off the tip you can use it as a musical instrument For 48 years running the city has held a conch shell blowing contest and this year, it was won by our colleague, Clinton Curry, a sixth generation Conch, who is the general manager of the Key West Shipwreck Treasures Musuem. Congrats Clinton!
