From 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the Lynn Hall Park the Lion’s Club will be offering its famous shrimp dinners, featuring locally caught wild shrimp from the Fort Myers Beach shrimp fleet. Over 100 arts and crafts and fun food vendors will be selling their wares on and near the beach at the festival site.
The festival continues on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. with arts and crafts vendors, fun food and the Lion’s Club selling more shrimp dinners until they run out!
