It’s an island tradition that dates back almost two decades. More than 100,000 holiday lights in musical synchronicity. The colorful lighting of a majestic, 30-foot Christmas tree at the threshold to the Gulf of Mexico. Live holiday music. A spectacular fireworks show on the beach. Laser lights. Even real snow falling from the palm trees. All attending by a thousand or more holiday loving folks — grandparents, parents, children and grandkids.
And get this: it’s all yours to enjoy free.
Yes, it’s the annual ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa Tree Lighting Celebration, when the Official Beach Resort of Captiva Island — and its parent corporation, Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts — extends a hearty and heart-felt thank you to all of our guests, past and present, local and from around the world.
