Let’s Hear It For Pink Gulf Shrimp!
Join the Fort Myers Beach Lion’s Club as they celebrate our local shrimp industry at our annual Shrimp Festival. There will be plenty of ‘pink gold’ or pink gulf shrimp that our area is famous for. Vendors, a parade and other activities are also part of the tradition.
Shrimp Festival Parade
The parade begins at 10 A.M. on Saturday. The parade will begin down by Fort Myers Beach Elementary School and end at Lynn Hall Park next to Times Square. Afterwards the Shrimp Festival Pageant will crown this year’s Shrimp Queen. Find a good spot along the way to watch and enjoy!
After the parade the festival continues for two days. The highlight are the famous shrimp dinners sold by the Lion’s club. There will also be over 100 vendors selling all different kinds of interesting things.
Calling all PRINCESSES And Future Queens!
This year’s Shrimp Festival pageant is looking for Princesses! Girls age 14-20 years old are eligible. APPLY HERE
