shrimp festival parade

The Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival parade is approximately 2-miles long and runs down the main street of town on Estero Blvd from the Beach Elementary school (parade loading zone) to the base of the Matanzas Bridge on the beach side. Parade entrants are automatically entered into our Shrimp Festival Parade competition and awarded trophies for best in class.

Attendees: The Matanzas bridge closes at 9AM so arrive early! Parade goers can watch from the sides of the parade route and catch prizes from the floats that are thrown.
