If you are planning a visit to Sanibel Island and Sandalfoot in December, you will have many holiday attractions to choose from, but none better than Holiday Nights at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. This is a favorite venue for residents and visitors and the estates become even more beautiful in December.
Many new light displays are planned for this year and the popular “Liquid Fireworks” Waltzing Waters lighted water fountain display will again feature a state-of-the-art light show choreographed with holiday music. New displays include two 25’ lighted steel trees and an 18’ lighted tree at the Edison Fountain. New this year too are lights that go all the way up to the base of the fronds, thanks to a lift donated by Sunbelt Rentals.
A nightly event schedule can be found on the website, www.edisonfordwinterestates.org and tickets can be pre-booked. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for ages 13 – 19 and $2 for ages 6 – 12. Admission is free for members. Holiday Nights hours are from 5:30 to 9:00 pm.
Special event tours are also available, including Guided Holiday Tours at $30/$25/$18 and the Inside the Homes Tours at $50. The Guided tours are offered every night at 6 and 7pm and the Inside the Homes tour is offered Wednesday evenings at 6:30.
