Each event weekend on this popular southwest Florida barrier island will be a themed, fun-filled extravaganza of sight and sound, set against the backdrop of the shimmering Gulf of Mexico and breathtaking sunsets. Visitors to Captiva Island during Captiva Holiday Village weekends enjoy an amazing line-up of street dancers and fireworks, Jam concerts, a lighted boat parade, a decorated golf cart parade, and the “Marching Mullet Band Parade”.
Kick off the holiday season with the brilliant sights and sounds of the annual tree lighting and fireworks show at ‘Tween Waters Inn. The event begins at sunset and includes music, the lightening of the tree overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and a colorful fireworks display.
A magical evening hosted by ‘Tween Waters Inn. Bring a blanket and some wine as you sit back and enjoy beautiful operatic voices while the sun dips into the Gulf of Mexico.
For more than two decades island businesses, organizations, residents, and tourists have gathered for one of Captiva’s most treasured annual events, the Luminary Festival. Captiva sparkles with illuminated candles from end to end as we mark the launch of the holiday season.
