I heard the Pretenders in Paradise show is canceled?

If the new owners of the Pier House are unwilling or incapable of hosting the event, why not move it to another location?

Pretenders is THE top event for Fantasy Fest, and they want to kill it?

What a sad and ominous day for Key West.

I would like to see Fantasy Fest eliminated completely. Who wants to see hundreds of fat naked sweaty people pissing, puking and trashing our island! I wonder how many northerners would act like morons in their hometowns? They've ruined it for the locals.

It would be difficult to find a place in old town large enough to hold an event like that.

The Ocean Key, Casa Marina or maybe the Southernmost Beach Cafť?

Fort Zach or the Sheridan on Smathersí is a little too far outside the entertainment district, and just wouldnít feel the same.

Maybe Mallory square, but I donít know how you would keep people from sneaking in without a ticket.

Fantasy Fest & Pretenders in Paradise has lost any remnants of creativity. Fantasy Fest in general is simply trashy & Pretenders in Paradise especially back stage was getting simply creepy. It was known for many years as "The Snake Pit" as in theft, sabotage, and general rudeness.

Yes, Pretenders In Paradise was run by "generally rude, thieving, simply creepy, sabotaging, pit snakes".

Or, maybe Kami didnít win because she's "simply" not talented.
