April tips, weather, and events 

If you want to see the true colors of Key West, visit us in April. This month is when the community celebrates the legacy of local ‘outsider’ artist Stanley Papio, whose welding business on Key Largo turned into a lifetime’s work of intriguing, inventive metal and mixed-media kinetic sculptures. The Key West Art & Historical Society now possesses and preserves his work, and hosts an annual festival and parade inspiring participants to create their own human-powered sculptures. It’s a sight to behold!
