The City of Key West will host a parade reenacting a historical march from the 1890s, kicking off Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park’s Annual Civil War Heritage Days event.

The parade begins at 4 p.m. on Friday, February 3rd. It starts with a memorial service at the historic Clinton Square at the foot of Whitehead Street.

From there, the park anticipates over 100 reenactors to march a route that will take them past the Mel Fisher Museum, down a block of Front to Duval, then up to Southard Street, where they will continue until reaching Fort Zachary Taylor.

This will be the 32nd celebration of Civil War Heritage Week, in which visitors to the state park will be greeted by volunteers reenacting the Union soldiers who occupied the fort during the Civil War.
