There is a "Pet Masquerade & Parade" today at 5:30 at the Casa Marina Resort. Other long running events like the "Homemade Bikini Contest", Fogarty's 11 Annual "Red Night" happens tonight at 9:00 pm. the list goes on and on. Tomorrow starting at noon is the "Dante's Halos and Horns Pool Party and Wet T-Shirt Contest". You don't want to miss the Green Parrot's "Monster's Ball", a collection of sea serpents, mermaids, and a host of other bizarre monsters form the sea. This list goes on and on, most of the party's are too much fun and you can just wear yourself to a frazzle trying to make all of the parties this week.
