Hit Key West for Hemingway Days

The importance of being Ernest is never higher than during the “Papa" Hemingway Look-Alike Contest portion of Key West's Hemingway Days fest, the perfect excuse to hit the Overseas Highway and do the Keys like Papa (by which we mean drunk and brilliant, and mostly drunk, at the infamous Sloppy Joe's).

Ernest Hemingway look-alikes demonstrated a "running of the bulls" Saturday for the annual Key West Hemingway Days celebration.

The white-bearded men, wearing red scarves and red berets, paraded through Key West's historic downtown with five fake bulls on wheels.

Paula Deen's Husband Finalist in Hemingway Look-Alike Contest

Hemingway Days celebrates the author, who lived in the Keys throughout the 1930s, and occurs yearly around his July 21st birthday. The celebration includes literary readings, a marlin tournament, and a look-alike contest hosted by Sloppy Joe's, a bar Hemingway is said to have frequented.

The final round of the look-alike contest will take place Saturday night.
