Everyone enjoys the good time in the outdoor setting at the park and this one is huge. The artists come from all over South Florida and lots from Miami and Palm Beach. There is lots of classy stuff and a lot of bright tropical paintings. You know, art with that florida keys vibe! It got so big they had to move the event off of Pigeon Key and over here to the Central Park Community Center.
When you come down to Marathon for the event make sure you walk over to the City Marina, which is directly next to the community park. It is huge and all the captains that moor sailboats come buzzing in on those little tiny dingy boats. It is a hoot to see. They pack them up with food and beer and take all the groceries and the dog back out to the sailboat. Just a keys thing to see and do.
Everyone needs to visit the Pigeon Key Marine Science Center when visiting Marathon Key. The Seven Mile Bride Park has a really cool history. The island itself is the original Henry Flagler Work Camp for the Overseas Railway.
This historic island is dedicated to the preservation of history, marine research and environmental education for all that want to know. Electricity enabled Pigeon Key to transform from a work camp and outpost for the Overseas Highway into a Marine Science camp. SALT Services Inc are the solar technicians that built the solar array to be used to satisfy most of the electrical needs for Pigeon Key. Pigeon Key is a 5 acre island near Marathon that once served as the base camp for workers that constructed Henry Flagler's Florida Keys Over-Sea Railroad.
