Edison Mall is kicking off the new year with our second annual Dreams & Inspirations event on Saturday, January 15, 2022 from noon – 4 p.m. The Dreams & Inspirations event, celebrating Dr. King’s birthday, will be held in the Edison Mall parking lot between JCPenney and Monarcas.
Dreams & Inspirations will highlight locally owned businesses, artisans, and food trucks. There will be speeches throughout the event highlighting Dr. King’s inspiration for people to dream and work to make those dreams a reality. Some of the speakers include City of Fort Myers Mayor Kevin Anderson, Mr. Abdul Muhammed from the Quality Life Center and Jean Nafrere, owner of JSN Sneakers and Street Ware in the Edison Mall.
“Dr. King’s legacy has had an impact on one and all,” states Brad Lunn, General Manager at Edison Mall. “We are proud to host this celebration that brings people together to ignite the spirit of unity, while supporting our local small businesses.”
There will also be music, a designated kid zone with arts and crafts, and more. Guests will be given swag bags, and have the opportunity to win raffle prizes throughout the event. This outdoor, social distanced event will take place at the Edison Mall, located at 4125 Cleveland Avenue in Fort Myers, in the parking lot between JC Penney and Monarcas, from noon to 4 p.m. Register HERE for the FREE event and a family friendly great time of celebration.
