They offer assistance in various forms, such as academic scholarships and hospital bills, and are dedicated to helping those in need. This group hosts the Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival, with all the proceeds from the event going to support local charities. As the name suggests, the festival is centered around shrimp. It features a shrimp parade, shrimp pageant, and even a shrimp eating contest. Don't miss out on this highly anticipated charity event!

Saint Patrick's Day Block Party

Saint Patrick's Day offers a spirited and memorable celebration that transcends borders and brings communities together.

Fourth of July

Head down to Times Square for a day filled with patriotism, community, and joy. The Fourth of July is a time when people come together to celebrate their nation with barbecues, parades, and fireworks. There's nothing more breathtaking than witnessing the fireworks display over the Gulf of Mexico and taking in that salty ocean breeze.
