Celebrate Independence Day
in Fort Myers Beach
All over the island, flags are going up, fireworks are being dusted off and there’s excitement in the air, as people get ready for the big Fourth of July celebration this Saturday. There is nothing like the Fourth in a small town, and ours is no exception. The fun begins in the morning, with a parade resplendent in red, white and blue. Beginning at 10am at the Beach Library, around 50 civic groups, businesses, veterans groups, kids and others with patriotic spirit will make their way to Time Square, where the Town of Fort Myers Beach will be set up throughout the day selling Fourth t-shirts, glow sticks and necklaces and – at 2pm - hosting the 2nd Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest.
