Top Events in the Florida Keys

Crowds gather at Sloppy Joe's bar to celebrate New Years Eve in Key West.

Broadcast live on CNN, the Key West New Year's celebration is -- like everything else down here -- just a little different. Rather than a big ball dropping over Times Square, you'll experience a giant conch shell descending over Sloppy Joe's bar as the seconds count down to the new year ... or a pirate wench lowered from a schooner ... or a drag queen being lowered in a giant shoe from a balcony on Duval Street. Did we mention that Key West has a few bars where you can raise a toast, as well?
