Mistletoe Magic, 62nd Annual Holiday House

Daily thru Dec 22nd:  The whimsical artistic style of Mackenzie-Childs meets the rich tradition of Holiday House with a lively dash of jazzy New Orleans spice thrown in to create “Mistletoe Magic,” the 62nd Annual Holiday House presented by the Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club. In addition to touring both festively decorated historic homes, children may visit with Santa Claus at the Langford-Kingston home during each night, and a variety of local musical performers will provide entertainment during the run of the event. The hours are 5 – 9 pm, with the last tour beginning at 8:30 pm. Admission is $5 for adults. Children under age 10 are free. Veterans and active military service members are admitted free with identification. 


Holiday Nights

Friday thru Sunday:  Join us for an evening holiday event at Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium! Our trail will be adorned with twinkling holiday lights. Santa will be in attendance from 7-9 PM to take photos and interact with the kids. We will have treats, refreshments, and roasting marshmallows by the campfire. Craft stations and caroling make it a true holiday party from 6:30 – 9:30 pm each night! $5 per person or free for Calusa members!


Holiday Express

Daily thru Dec 30th:  24th annual holiday express train rides through Lakes Park. Come and enjoy all the holiday lights with family and friends.  Train rides 10 am – 9 pm daily through December 30th, courtesy of the
