Popular Holiday Tradition Returns for 64th Year in Downtown Fort Myers
FORT MYERS, FL – Do you wanna find a snowman in Southwest Florida? Then be sure to not miss “Winter Wonderland,” the 64th Annual Holiday House, presented by the Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club. Dazzling decor in spectacular hues of turquoise, pale aqua, silver, and white, accented with sparkle, provide the backdrop in your search for the elusive snowman in each designer-inspired room.
Every year since 1956, hundreds of members and volunteers of the Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club spend hours planning creative designs to transform the interior and exterior of the Langford-Kingston and Burroughs homes, including the lawns, gardens, and grounds, into magical displays of holiday design and décor.
“Holiday House is a wonderful tradition our members take great delight in sharing with our community each year,” said Natalie Van Horn, 2020 Holiday House Chair. “This year has been especially hard for so many in our community because of the ongoing pandemic, and we are hopeful ‘Winter Wonderland’ will fill our guests with sparkly and joyful holiday cheer.”
Holiday House 2020 will open Wednesday, December 9, offering self-guided tours through Sunday, December 20. The hours are 5:00pm – 9:00pm, with the last tour guests admitted at 8:30pm. Admission is $5 for adults. Children under age 10 are free. Veterans and active military service members are admitted free with identification. Advance tickets are on sale now and may be purchased through the Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club website: www.fmwcc.net. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.
Covid-19 safety guidelines: The Fort Myers Woman’s Community Club will observe CDC guidance to safely present Holiday House 2020. Masks (covering both the nose and the mouth) are required for entry and touring the homes. Indoor tours are limited to first-floor rooms only. Directional signage must be followed to ensure social distancing and one-way flow through each home. Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the tour. Regrettably, Santa must remain at the North Pole to stay safe before the big night! Opening hours and activities subject to change based on Covid-19 guidance.
The Historic Langford-Kingston Home and Burroughs Home are located in downtown Fort Myers at the corner of First Street and Fowler Street.
