Costumed animals compete for prize at Fantasy Fest

— Two African tortoises and their owners, dressed as members of the fictional “Addams Family,” won a top prize in a pet masquerade in the Florida Keys.

The Wednesday night Fantasy Fest Pet Masquerade is part of a 10-day festival that continues with a series of events including a masquerade march beginning at the local cemetery and a parade set for Halloween night. It traditionally attracts more than 60,000 revelers. Fantasy Fest ends Sunday.

Tom and Jackie O’Neil of Marathon, Fla., are the tortoise owners.
