From a 90’s old school hip hop karaoke night to a celebration of all things sugar, plus a few spots you don’t want to miss for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s the weekend and we’ve got you covered.
Clewiston Sugar Festival
Just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down. So, imagine what a whole festival of it will do! A tradition that dates back to the 1930s, the Clewiston Sugar Festival is in honor and in celebration of the end of US Sugar’s harvest. The festival now includes live performances (Big & Rich will be there!), arts & crafts shows, a classic car show, a 5k, sports tournaments, dance performances and a kids park. Friday & Saturday. 110 W. Osceola Ave. Clewiston.
90’s Hip Hop & Karaoke Battle
If you like to “Jump Around”, and if you know that “Mo’ Money” equals “Mo’ Problems”, you need ( like you absolutely need ) to get to The 90s Hip-Hop Karaoke & Lip Sync battle! You know all the lyrics, you know when the beat drops and you know exactly when to burst out into your favorite dance move! It’s time to show off that choreography you made up years ago in your bedroom – or at least come out and cheer on those who are brave enough to take the stage! Best dressed wins a prize. $10. Friday, March 16th. 8:00 P.M. Dr. Carrie Robinson Center. 2990 Edison Ave. Fort Myers.
The Young Dead Cassette Release Show
Sometimes, you need to just grab a beer and enjoy a little live, local music. Go support The Young Dead as they release their new cassette. If you haven’t been to HOWL in Ft. Myers, it is a tattoo shop with an intimate stage and performance area. HOWL is a hub for local bands and musicians, and if you love to jam out to artists inspired by Nirvana, Stevie Nicks and Sonic Youth … you’ll want to check out this show. Saturday, Mar. 17. HOWL Ft. Myers. 4162 Cleveland Ave. Fort Myers.
