Fort Myers Beach is set to host a spectacular series of free outdoor concerts, promising a blend of relaxation and excitement. Starting November 12th, Bayside Park will come alive with the sound of music every Sunday afternoon, featuring a lineup of the best local bands. From high-energy dance rock to classic grooves, there’s a beat for everyone.
Locals and visitors alike can kick back with lawn chairs, enjoy the company of well-behaved pets, and immerse themselves in the vibrant tunes from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The atmosphere is perfect for danc-ing or just chilling out.
Great food and drink are just steps away from the park’s cordon, with the event’s title sponsors, Wahoo Willies Tiki Bar and Grill and Snug Harbor Waterfront Restaurant, within earshot of the festivities.
Bill Ignatti, Jr., is the manager at Wahoo Willies and has been working in the restaurant business on FMB since he was ﬁ fteen. He invites concertgoers to enhance the experience by exploring the nearby establishments and culinary delights. “It’s about supporting the local businesses bouncing back with vigor,” he said.
Like many, Ignatti views these concerts as a sign that real tourism and economic activity have returned to FMB.
“We were supposed to open last year the day Ian hit. We were lucky with the storm and were up and running six weeks later, serving meals from a food truck. We’ve come a long way, and Old San Carlos is back. Wahoo’s and Snug are the place to be, especially for these upcoming shows.”
Mark your calendars for Sundays, as the concert series showcases bands like The Echo, Guilty Pleasure, and King’s Chambers, with their dynamic performances bound to get attendees on their feet. Whether it’s the nostalgic hits of the 70s and 80s or the “fat-bottomed rock” of Jacob’s Ladder, Fort Myers Beach is the place to be for an unforgettable auditory journey this holiday season.
