It’s going to be another hot weekend and the temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico aren’t even making it easy to cool off. Fortunately, we have a few ideas to help out. Here are your Weekend Vibes, what’s happening in Southwest Florida July 14-16. First of all, Satruday’s Christmas in July Sip and Stroll has been canceled at The Bell Tower Shops in Fort Myers. In addition, they have been canceled Friday night’s Yappy Hour because of the heat. Please use extra caution when taking your pets out this weekend. Here are some tips to keep them safe, and it’s more than hydration.

If these events were canceled, it is possible that others could follow suit. It never hurts to call ahead or check social media and websites before you head out this weekend.
