“Fantasy Fest isn’t for everyone, but it will create an interesting vacation experience for our owners who want to taste a wilder atmosphere,” said Carlos DeJesus, General Manager of the Hammocks.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced its Marathon, Fla., resort, The Hammocks, provides the perfect getaway and ideal location for the annual Fantasy Fest celebration in Key West, Fla., Oct. 21-Oct. 30.
Bluegreen’s Marathon resort, The Hammocks, allows owners to experience the Florida Keys and Fantasy Fest with a relaxing and carefree atmosphere. Its bayside location creates a peaceful setting that allows owners to not only enjoy the local wildlife on land, but also take in and explore the ocean and local reefs. Palm trees, hammocks and tiki torches dot the landscape, while a sparkling pool and hot tub invite owners to kick back and relax.
When Bluegreen owners are ready to experience a more party, Mardi Gras atmosphere, they will be able to make the short drive down to Key West, known as the southernmost point in the U.S. Each year, the quiet and tropical town of Key West turns into what has been described as “Mardi Gras on speed” for Fantasy Fest. For more than 30 years, the festival has thrilled attendees with its spirit and flair. This year’s theme of Aquatic Afrolic will feature 10 days of costume contests, parities and masquerade balls. The festival ends on Oct. 29 with a grand parade, complete with floats and costumes designed around the year’s theme. Most of the events can be found on the famous Duval Street, where costumes, arts and crafts and body painting are par for course.
“Fantasy Fest isn’t for everyone, but it will create an interesting vacation experience for our owners who want to taste a wilder atmosphere,” said Carlos DeJesus, General Manager of the Hammocks. “For many, it is one of the top things to do in the Florida Keys. One thing about it, our owners will be close enough to the action and yet able to escape the craziness by returning to The Hammocks.”
