Florida: Key West’s Conch Shell Blowing Contest

It’s almost time to pucker up for the annual Conch Honk — officially the 51st annual Conch Shell Blowing Contest — in Key West on Saturday. Dozens of contestants are expected to take turns squawking, bleating or possibly even tootling something resembling music when the celebration of Key West’s cultural heritage begins at noon in the tropical garden of the Oldest House Museum, 322 Duval St. Those lacking their own “instruments” can purchase conch shells on site.
