Just because the southwest area of Florida doesn't get the crisp autumn temperatures that most of the rest of the country experiences doesn't mean that it forgoes the fall festivals that many people love so much. Living in Fort Myers provides you with endless beautiful weather, making it the perfect backdrop for this year's fall festivals. The following festivals are coming soon and you won't want to miss them!
1. Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival
Join other pirate revelers this Columbus Day weekend from October 6-8 for the 12th Annual Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival. Recognized by USA Today as the number #2 pirate festival in the country, it features themed performances and live music, children's activities, a pirate bazaar and more for attendees of all ages.
2. Fort Myers Punkin'palooza
For six days in October, Fleamasters Flea Market is transformed into a harvest celebration that features a pumpkin patch, live music, children's crafts, shopping bargains and lots more. Starting Friday, October 13 and running all weekend, festival goers can enjoy activities from 9 AM until 5 PM at its Punkin'polooza: Fleamasaters' 2017 Great Pumpkin Festival. The fun continues on October 20-22, 2017.
3. Cape Coral Oktoberfest
The 32nd Annual Cape Coral Oktoberfest is slated to bring the fun of a Munich celebration to the southwest Florida area. This year, the event spans two weekends: October 20-22 and October 27-29. The festival tent and outside biergarten feature non-stop performances from live bands -- including two that come directly from Germany -- as well as three stages and two dance floors. Speciality foods, children's activities, exhibitors, vendors, hand-made crafts and more promise to make this highly-anticipated event a favorite.
The plethora of activities that are available is just one of the many perks of living in Estero. Another reason are the two suburban communities that offer top-notch amenities for their residents: Springs at Gulf Coast in Estero and Springs at Six Mile Cypress in Fort Myers.
