March 3, 2023 - Miami Marlin’s mascot Billy the Marlin came to Key West today to let the citizens know that there will be another Key West Day this coming August.
Billy met with a group of May Sands Montessori students at City Hall, then dropped by the Southernmost Point for an iconic photo.
Vice Mayor Sam Kaufman has worked with local radio producer Rick Lopez and the Marlin’s organization over the past few years to make Key West Day a reality. It provides a special day for Key Westers and raised funds for the Police Athletic League.
The event has included specially priced tickets for locals and a chance to come out on the field. Police Chief Sean Brandenburg threw out the first pitch last year, and Mayor Teri Johnston did it the year before.
Visitors at the Southernmost Buoy has a pleasant surprise today when Billy showed up with a group of City dignitaries as escorts.
