Here are your Weekend Vibes, what’s happening in Southwest Florida  September 2-4.

This weekend is not just any weekend. It’s a three day occasion, celebrating Labor Day Weekend. The holiday is known as the end to summer, beginning of fall. However, the temperatures in Southwest Florida feel anything but fall-like.

Regardless, the weekend is crazy busy with side-walk sales. Shopping is a big deal. But once you’ve hit your favorite store, and raked in the deals there is still more fun to be had.

Downtown Fort Myers

Feeling Weekend Vibes in Downtown Fort Myers’ historic district

Things kick off in Fort Myers with the monthly Art Walk. You can check out new art exhibits at the downtown galleries, enjoy receptions, listen to live music and check out art vendors. Most of the action happens outside on First Street and the surrounding businesses.

You can also participate in things such as Pirate Parties, Cornhole Tournaments, beer dinners, Food Truck Rallys, and live entertainment. You’ll find all of this crazy fun  at Breweries in the Fort Myers area to celebrate the SWFL Craft Beer Week.

If you’re headed to the beach, head out early to get a parking spot. Two Naples beaches are finally using a pilot program with the PayByPhone app to make paying easier. Look for that at both Lowdermilk Park and 5th Avenue South.

There are all kinds of things going on to keep you entertained, both inside where it is cool, and outside in the fresh air. If you’re looking some ideas of what to sip to keep cool over the holiday weekend, here are the top wines for grilling. Also, check out these refreshing rum cocktails to really get the party going.

Get out, support local, and enjoy these weekend vibes, what’s happening in Southwest Florida September 2-4.
