Art Walk Fort Myers River District | 157/365 Things to Do
The first Friday of the month is Art Walk Fort Myers in the River District of Downtown Fort Myers, Florida. If you’ve not been it’s a great time! On the first Friday from 6 -10 pm each month the city comes alive! Besides exhibits at over fourteen galleries you can also meet the artists and watch live art demonstrations.
During Art Walk, First Street is closed to automobiles and is pedestrians only. Art Vendors may be in front of the galleries but summer of 2019 they are inside during the summer due to the rainy season. There are a variety of street performers, hoola-hoopers, musicians, dancers and all around interesting characters. We saw ‘Jesus’ walking around in Teva sandals. Like I said, Characters.
Many of the shops and boutiques are open plus many of the local restaurants and bars so you can eat and enjoy local restaurant fare from sit down dining to grab and go slices of pizza
There is parking in lots, on street and a parking garage. The river front is only a block or so off so you can even take a walk to the Caloosahatchee River to watch the sun go down.
Art Walk is rain or shine! If you would like more info, https://www.facebook.com/fortmyersartwalk
