Social Southwest Florida: June Edition

Summer is here in sunny Southwest Florida and with it come summer Barbeques, Picnics, and many other gatherings and events.  Hi it’s Marcus Larrea with Palm Paradise Real Estate and looking at the month ahead, we want to highlight some of Southwest Florida’s upcoming events for you to enjoy.

Memorial Day marks the beginning of the summer season with beach activities and family bbq’s. For military veterans and others, it’s a day to commemorate and honor Americans that lost their lives in the line of duty. From all of at Palm Paradise Real Estate, we honor you and are forever thankful. The city of Fort Myers will be holding their Annual Memorial Day Commemoration starting at 9:30am on Sunday May 31st in the “Field of Honor” section of Fort Myers Memorial Gardens. A flyover and wreath-laying ceremony along with speeches will highlight the event that typically attracts close to 500 people each year.

Do you ever wonder about our Southwest Florida environment and have questions? Like where do shells come from? How do sea turtles nest? What is red tide? Join Beach Walks of SWFL on Fort Myers Beach, Thursday June 10th, for a 60-minute naturalist-led beach walk on one of Southwest Florida’s most beautiful beaches and learn about our coastline and all the amazing plants and wildlife that call it home. Beach Walks of SWFL promote sustainable and ethical practices in shelling and exploring the local environment.

If you’re a Jeep lover like so many other Floridians, Prodigy Offroad presents: Jeep Night Street Fest on Saturday June 12th from 6 - 10pm at Millennial Brewing Company in Downtown Fort Myers. Free to the public, Millennial Brewing Company invites you to park and look at a curated collection of the nicest Jeeps in the SWFL area, while enjoying food from four local food trucks, live music and a diverse selection of craft beer.

What if you love craft beer, but Jeeps aren’t really your thing? Then you’ll be happy to know that Fort Myers Brewing Company is once again holding it’s Summer Beer Fest from Friday June 18th to Sunday June 20th. With over 10 food trucks, over 30 craft brews from Fort Myers Brewing Company and live music all day, it’s a free event for the whole family to enjoy, and its dog-friendly too!

And as always, Downtown Fort Myers comes alive on the first and third Friday of the month for Art Walk and Music Walk. From Jazz and Blues to Rock N Roll, music acts line the streets as local shops, restaurants and galleries welcome the public to this free event that showcases all that the Fort Myers River District has to offer!
