What To Do in April in Naples

Our season is winding down and many of the snowbirds are flying back home to begin their spring cleaning and gardening.  Our town is relaxing a little and the pace is not as frenetic but there are still plenty of activities to keep you busy as the weather heats up.

Swamp Buggy Races – April 9 – if you missed the rescheduled event in March here is another opportunity to watch our world famous swamp buggy races.  This is an evening event “under the lights” and promises to be as muddy and dirty as the daylight ones!  Whether you are a fan or a newcomer, it is sure to be a great evening of entertainment.

Earth Day Festival – April 16 – The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is hosting a community celebration of Earth Day.  Guest speakers, live music, festival food, exhibits, crafts and more are all on hand for your enjoyment.  This is a great opportunity to support our community and the planet we live on and have some fun at the same time!
