Anderson celebration

Locals will hold a Celebration of Life today in honor of Peter Anderson, a Key West promoter and 25-year secretary general of the farcical Conch Republic who died of cancer July 16.

The event will begin today with a gathering, or "muster," at 5 p.m. at Mallory Square. A parade will start at 6 p.m. and run the length of Duval Street. The evening will turn into a party at Southernmost Beach Cafe. Two Conch Trains will be available for those who can't walk or bike the parade route. For parade entry spot assignments, call Tommy Mack at or 305-394-5079.
