Key West ends Hemingway Days

KEY WEST, Fla. -- Hemingway Days, the annual mid-July special event in Key West, Fla., will not be repeated except for the Sloppy Joe's Bar-sponsored Papa Look-Alike contest.

Unsettled legal issues with Ernest Hemingway's sons coupled with a lack of funding led to the demise of the 19-year-old event.

Visitor interests currently are exploring alternative midsummer promotions.
