Making weekend plans?  Check out these 5 things to do this weekend in Fort Myers:

Edison Festival Crafts on the River

Friday – Sunday:  Centennial Park is transformed into a craft lovers dream with exhibitors displaying their hand-crafts during the three-day Edison Festival Crafts on the River event. This is a non-juried event open to local and national artisans and crafters. The event delights in old, new and unique items that come from all over the world. Original designs are displayed by artists in an informal atmosphere that encourages visitors to talk with the artists about their work and, in some cases, see them in action. A large variety of mediums include drawings, paintings, graphics, sculpture, crafts, jewelry, photography and edible art. The range of assorted size, subject, media, and price provide something for everyone created by the artists you meet at the event. Attendees enjoy a beautiful setting in the green space along the Caloosahatchee where the three-day event takes place prior to the Grand Parade.

Greek Fest Fort Myers 2018

Friday – Sunday:  For over 43 years, Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church has entertained Lee County with a glorious display of sights, sounds, and tastes of Greece. Families have been coming to Cypress Lake Drive for many reasons—the food, the gifts, colorful dancers, authentic Greek music, curiosity or just plain delight! No matter the reason, they will experience the warmth and generosity that have been the hallmarks of the Greek culture. This festival is not only about music, dance, wine, food, and family fun. It is also about coming together as friends, having a good time and saying, Efharisto (thank you) to our community! ADMISSION: Adults $5 for the entire weekend. Children under 12 years old are free.  Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 8210 Cypress Lake Drive, HOURS: Friday 11am-11pm, Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday 11pm-7pm

Music Walk

Friday:  Enjoy great sounds during a casual evening in the River District! Free to Attend.

Edison Festival of Light Parade Celebration

Saturday:  One of the best ways to beat the traffic and have a prime spot for the Grand Parade is to come early and enjoy an entire day of festivities, starting at 11 am. The Parade Celebration includes all-day entertainment and music and is a prime spot for watching the parade! Fun, food, music and crafts make this a family event in the Downtown River District. It’s excitement and amusement right until the arrival of the Grand Parade. Schedule: 11:00 – 11:30 a.m. Showtime Cloggers, 12:10 – 12:40 p.m. Robin Dawn Dance Studio, 1:20 – 1:50 p.m. Melody Lane Dance Studio, 1:55 – 2:35 p.m. Country Rythm Cloggers, 3:00 — 5:00 p.m. Soulixer, 5:30 — 7:30 p.m. Half Step Down. Tickets are not required for this event.
