Making weekend plans? Check out these 5 things to do this weekend in Fort Myers:
Quarter Auction to Benefit The Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary
Thursday: This is part of the Rebel Riders RC‘s ongoing fundraising effort to support the Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary, home to abused, abandoned, and neglected wildlife. This event from 6-9 pm will give you the opportunity to double your donation efforts. Thanks to our wonderful friends at Applebee’s, we will be doing a Dining to Donate on the same day as the Quarter Auction. Bring or show the enclosed flyer to your server, and Applebee’s will donate 10% of your check to the Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary! So, come on out and enjoy the auctions, have a great meal, and double down your donation!
Dueling Piano Bar
Friday: Yes, you heard that right. We’re turning Millennial Brewing Company into a Piano Bar for one night only! From 5-10 pm, there will be live dueling pianos, food trucks, low lights, and great beer. FREE to enter!
Friday: The “Patriotic Pups” Yappy Hour runs from 6 to 8 p.m. in Center Court. Bell Tower Shops, Southwest Florida’s dog-friendly shopping, dining, and entertainment destination, holds Yappy Hour on the second Friday of each month. Pooches can participate in a lively USA-themed costume contest, showcasing their best red, white and blue fashions. The cost to participate is a $5 donation to the Gulf Coast Humane Society, and one lucky dog will earn the title of Most Patriotic Pup.
Friday: Mystery Walk is a family-friendly event invites you to search for the clues throughout core downtown and enter for a chance to win prizes! It’s a great way to explore downtown and have some fun too! Check-in starts at 6 pm and the challenge stays open until about 8 pm. Cash prizes for four winners. Check-in is at the corner of First and Hendry Streets in front of Iberia Bank. This is FREE to play and no purchase is necessary at participating locations.
