holiday nights brochure 2013     The 38th annual Edison & Ford Holiday Nights opens earlier than ever this year, Thanksgiving weekend and is a “must see” holiday tradition in Southwest Florida. During the holidays the homes and gardens of Thomas and Mina Edison and Henry and Clara Ford are seasonally decorated and visitors have the option of a self-guided tour or a guided tour with an Edison Ford site historian (6:00 and 7:00 p.m.). For the month long event, the site remains open until 9:00 p.m. with beautifully decorated historic buildings and gardens and millions of colorful lights.

      Edison & Ford Holiday Nights includes nightly entertainment by school and community groups, book signings and appearances by artists, and the “Children’s Tree Trail”, a forest of trees decorated by Lee County students. The museum and lab will be open during the event.

      Tickets for a self-guided tour are $15 for adults and $2 for children (6-12); guided tours are $20 for adults and $11 for children (6-12). Edison Ford Members FREE.
