Last year, Joe Maxey won the Hemingway Look-Alike Contest on his eighth try.
This year, he won’t surrender his title — organizers of the annual event in Key West, Florida, have announced that the 2020 event has been canceled because of coronavirus concerns.
Sure, it would have taken place in July, but the typical participants are between sixty and eighty years old, making them more vulnerable to the virus.
We’ll have to wait until July 22-24, 2021, to see who succeeds Maxey as champion.
