On February 11 at 10 a.m., the public is invited to celebrate Thomas Edison's 175th birthday at Edison and Ford Winter Estates. The annual tradition continues with students from the Edison Park Creative and Expressive Arts School singing, dancing and playing stringed instruments. Cake will be served for visitors attending the party, which is sponsored in part by the Edison Pageant of Light, the organization founded in 1938 to memorialize Thomas Edison and honor his achievements and contributions to Fort Myers.
The party is a free public event (does not include tours or admission to the museum or lab) with limited seating. For more information, visit www.edisonford.org.
