FORT MYERS, Fla.-- The 3rd Annual Surf and Song Festival will have Downtown Fort Myers buzzing with bands Saturday.
The event will feature more than 90 musical acts, including headliners Craig Morgan and John Waite.
Fifteen stages, including the main stage at Centennial Park, will be set up downtown. Venues like Red Rock Saloon, Spirits of Bacchus, and French Connection will also have live music.
The event begins at 11am Saturday, but roads will close beginning at 4am. First Street between Dean Street and Jackson Street will be blocked off, as well as Hendry Street.
Each year, the festival raises money for a local charity. This year, proceeds will go to the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation's Southwest Florida Autism Center Initiative Fund.
The fund will create an early diagnosis autism center in the community.
Admission to the main stage is $20, but everything else is free. Organizers are asking for a $10 donation, which will get you a wrist band good for discounts at local bars and restaurants.
