What Are the Hottest Events in Town for Florida Islanders?

What are some of the hottest events in Sanibel and Captiva Island?  This “Shelling Capital of the Western World” certainly has plenty of outdoor fun in its beaches and wildlife attractions.  However, residents of the area may find some of the following events exciting enough to lure them from the relaxing Florida island beaches.
For starters, there’s the Everglade Island Boat Tours and Everglades Excursion.  These eco-tours put you inside an airboat as you tour the jungles area of the Everglades region.  Residents always look forward to the 24th Annual BaileyFest, which features family carnival fun, including games, live music, prizes and entertainment.
Sanibel also welcomes locals and tourists to the Art Walk in Downtown Fort Myers as well as cultural show called “80s to the Max.”  The 23rd Annual 2D 3D All Florida Juried Exhibit is another exhibit in the springtime, while Miracle vs. Bradenton is a sports and recreation event held in Six Mile Cypress Pkwy.  The PBR Professional Bull Riders group put on a great show in the Germain Arena on Everblades Parkway.
In the summer, Sanibel has the 2010 Islands Night with games, contests, and activities for youngsters.  This show benefits charities.  Some of the past charities played for include the Sanibel School, the Children’s Hospital, Sanibel Captiva Cares and Hope Hospice.  The July 4th Fireworks Show at the Embassy Suites Fort Myers (one of the best Sanibel Island hotels to rent) is sure to delight people of all ages, while the Happy Birthday Henry Ford event at Edison and  Ford Winter Estates is sure to please historians.
In November, Sanibel Island, Florida welcomes the 22nd Annual American Sandsculpting Championship Festival.  This competition brings in the best sand sculptors throughout the country.  The Sanibel Luminary Festival is also held in November and will hold locals over until the Captiva Luminary Festival in December.  These festivals both contain wondrous holiday lights and refreshments.  
As far as traveling acts in Sanibel events (and in Captiva, FL), don’t miss Tutankhamun: Wonderful Things from the Pharaoh’s Tomb throughout the summer.  For more relaxed celebrations, look for the Quilt Show at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in October and for live musical performances at the Broadway Palm Theatre, which welcomes famous shows like Cinderella.  
While this city is known for its beach and wildlife refuges, there is plenty of local culture to experience in Sanibel Island!  Come get involved in the community!
