Holiday Events Around the Ft. Myers Area
It’s that time of year again. Before 2018 ends, let’s all make sure we have a great time and lots of memories with family. At Cape Coral Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we’re always looking for a great way to spend the holidays, and so we did some digging through the local pages. With the year coming to an end, we found several great events to attend, and if we find a few more, we’ll be sure to sprinkle them in along the way.

“Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer: The Musical”
Hertz Arena (formerly Germain Arena), 11000 Everblades Parkway, Estero.
7 pm; $24-54 admission (plus $10 for parking)
A great way to take the little ones out for a night would be to see the stop-motion TV special “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” come to life. The whole story, from Rudolph leaving Christmas town to meeting new friends and eventually helping Santa save Christmas. Go to hertzarena.com for more information.
