KEY WEST, Fla. – Gary Marion, better known as Drag Queen Sushi, stepped into Key West’s giant red high-heel shoe on Thursday.
Instead of midnight, Marion took the courageous step before 10 p.m. to abide by the curfew. Attendance was limited to encourage social distancing.
Instead of Duval Street, Marion dropped from a second-story area that faced the courtyard of the Bourbon Street Pub area.
Aside from the New Year’s Eve Shoe Drop, Key West also celebrates with the drops of a super-sized conch shell and a pirate wench, but the events were canceled.
