The Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival parade is approximately 2-miles long. It 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 beachside.
The Matanzas bridge closes at 9 AM, so arrive early! Parade-goers can watch from the sides of the parade route and catch prizes from the floats that are thrown. If unable to attend but would like to watch the parade, click here to stream the shrimp festival parade.
When the parade is over, go to the Shrimp Festival (at the foot of the FMB fishing pier, inside Lynn Hall Park) to get local Florida Pink Gold Shrimp Boil platters & shop close to 100 vendors with handmade goods.
