If you’re coming by land, go to EPOL + Oysters + Chicken Fest
This cruise has been a CMCS tradition for many years. We gather at Legacy Harbour Marina to celebrate our famous winter resident Thomas Alva Edison’s birthday. The Marina is located near his winter home and there are shops and restaurants nearby. Arrive on Friday for hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in the evening. There will be plenty more fun on Saturday culminating with the lighted Edison Grand Parade at 7pm with a starting point at Fort Myers High School and ending downtown.
Land Cruisers are most welcome to join any portions of this cruise!
Arrangements have been made at Legacy Harbor Marina for February 16 and 17 at the special CMCS rate of $2.75/ft (this includes electric). Slips are first come-first served and go fast! Slip reservations MUST be made through the cruise leader. Do NOT contact the marina directly. We’ve provided a convenient online form below.
There is a bar in the Tiki Hut area that opens at 4PM. After 4PM beer and wine (cash bar) is available. No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed in the Tiki Hut nor the deck area after 4PM.
SATURDAY: 12 noon at the front of “C” dock. All-you-can-eat oysters or chicken for those who signed up and paid in advance.
SUNDAY: No formal breakfast is planned. You’re on your own! After breakfast, head for home!
The Edison Parade of Lights is a very special occasion in the Ft. Myers Area. Please continue the CMCS tradition of lighting your boat to honor Thomas Edison. Plan to decorate your boat with white “Christmas” lights while at the marina. If you have extra lights to share, please bring them! For all land cruisers: Legacy Harbor Marina, 2044 West First St., Ft. Myers (239) 461-0775
