There are many reasons that people move to Naples, Florida.    Naples is well known for its beautiful beaches, multitude of restaurants, plentiful golf courses, and world-class shopping.  But what many people don’t realize is that Naples also offers a variety of entertaining events throughout the year.  The phrase “there’s something for everyone” couldn’t be truer. 

Here is just a sampling of some of the events offered in the first two months of 2012. One of the featured events was a high tea and fashion show organized by Collier County merchants.  Those in attendance sipped champagne and were served a high tea while observing the latest trends in fashion and jewelry.  For those with a taste for fine vintages, there was The Naples Wine Festival.  The Everglades Seafood festival took place in Everglades City, which is just south of Naples.  This festival included fresh seafood, music, arts and crafts, and games for children.  For the golf enthusiast, there was the ACE Group classic PGA championship. This prominent tournament was televised on the golf channel.

There will also be numerous offerings in March.  Every member of the family can have fun at the Old Florida Festival.  It is sponsored by the Collier County Museum and takes place on the grounds of the museum.  This festival celebrates the history of South Florida and features pirates, early settlers, and Conquistadors.  In addition, there are refreshments, music, children’s games and other entertainment.

If you still haven’t seen anything you like, how about Swamp Buggy Races?  Also happening are the Bonita Blues Festival, an Antique Engines Display, a St. Patrick’s Day Parade, a Strawberry Festival, and an Antique Car Show.  And that’s just a partial listing of what’s available in March!

The rest of the year is also jam-packed with events that will pique your interest.  So check out the Internet, the newspaper or one of the many locally produced publications that advertise these events.  Then – begin to fill in your calendar and enjoy!
