Many Sanibel residents enjoy the beautiful display of lights during the Sanibel Luminary Festival. 

On Friday December 2nd, Sanibel Sea School and the San-Cap chapter of Solutions to Avoid Red Tide (START) will partner to host Sanibel Luminary Festival attendees at the Sea School’s Flagship Campus on the east end of the island. The Sanibel Luminary Festival is a free community event held each year to mark the official start of the holiday season. 

Sanibel Sea School’s parking lot will be converted into a festive patio space, and visitors will enjoy mulled wine and beer, delicious snacks (including Ralph Woodring’s famous grilled mullet), cookie decorating, and music. There will also be family-friendly games and activities, and a raffle with a variety of exciting prizes from both organizations. 

“One of our raffle prizes will be priority camp registration for summer 2017,” said Chrissy Basturk, Sanibel Sea School’s Development Director. “The winning family will be able to sign up for the programs of their choice before registration officially opens. We hope this opportunity will encourage some of our summer camp families to stop by for a visit, so we won’t have to wait a whole year to see them again!”
