First time driving Lauderdale to Key West April 20th

Hi folks. Been to KW many times, but have always flown in. We're actually flying in to Lauderdale, staying there for 2 days, then driving to KW (one way only) and staying for a week. Leaving Lauderdale about 7 or 8 AM on Saturday, April 20th and wondering what sort of traffic to expect. I know the Conch Republic Festival is also going on, and thinking we may want to leave even earlier. I don't mind a 4 hour drive or so (the whole" you have to do it at least once" idea) but any longer than that, I may just abandon the car and jog the rest of the way

I know its impossible to say with any certainty, guess just really wondering what its like normally, and what its like when the Festival is going.Any thoughts? Thanks,

PHILADELPHIA,PA

Thanks sharla and flboy. I should know better anyway to trust map quest. I never have a good experience with them. Google maps is the way to go which are the directions everyone has been saying.
