The Edison Festival of Light Parade has a long history in Fort Myers and so does the involvement of the Edison Family. In fact, both Mina Edison and son Charles Edison were honored in the parade beginning in 1938.

So this year, the Edison Ford Wild Wizard and the NEW Robot Edison will appear in the Edison Festival Junior Parade in an “electric” golf cart which has been specially decorated for the occasion. Our own Thomas Edison (Jamie MaGirl) will also ride along.

The Wild Wizard’s “Muckers” will also accompany the Wizard and Thomas Edison. They will be distributing materials about summer camp, robotics camp and other inventive activities at the Wizard’s Estate.
