2016 Grand Marshal Announcement

2016 Grand Marshal

The Edison Festival of Light is extremely excited to announce the 2016 Grand Marshal. Each year a special individual that has ties to the Southwest Florida area is invited to participate in the festivities, and this year Ricky Manning from season 7 of The Voice will be our Grand Marshal.

Ricky will also be performing on stage at 3pm prior to riding in the Grand Parade (the parade starts at 7pm and is FREE to attend). Tickets are not needed for the events.

The stage is located along Edwards Drive across from Harborside Event Center in Fort Myers. We recommend parking in the parking garage that is located behind Harborside. You can find the entrance along Monroe. The garage will have a flat rate for the date no matter how many hours you are parked. Feel free to use the below map as a guide.
