March 24, 2023 - Festivities begin at 6 p.m. at Key West’s Coffee Butler Amphitheater in Truman Waterfront Park with a program combining live music, Keys history presentations and drone “fireworks.” Gates open at 5 p.m. and admission is free.
Popular local musician Nick Norman will open the celebration. At 7:15 p.m., regional trop-rock all-star Howard Livingston takes the stage to perform his signature Keys-inspired tunes. Livingston’s sets are to alternate with segments of South Florida PBS’ documentary, “The Florida Keys: 200 Years of Paradise,” and additional photos and video that chronicle the dramatic history of our island chain. The video will be interlaced with commentary by each Monroe County Commissioner detailing the unique history of their district. A drone “fireworks” display will cap the evening as 250 drones illuminate the sky over Truman Waterfront Park with imagery highlighting the entire Keys and celebrating our bicentennial.
