Edison and Ford Winter Estates will be open on select nights this summer, so that visitors can enjoy the cooler evening air along the riverfront. On Tuesday, Aug. 4 and Sept. 1 from 6 to 9 p.m., the public is invited to take an evening stroll around the property. Guests will also get to listen to a talk in the Moonlight Garden about fragrant plants and the history of the garden.
These two evening openings for “Strolling in the Moonlight” coincide with dates that a full moon will be near. Visitors will be able to stroll the grounds at their own pace and can walk onto the porches of Thomas Edison’s and Henry Ford’s winter homes. Small groups of 10 people will be escorted into the Moonlight Garden for the presentation (masks are required). Guests may also watch a video about the Moonlight Garden in the historic Edison Caretaker’s House (masks are required in indoor spaces).
The gardens will also be open two additional nights during the summer months: Friday, Aug. 14 and Sept. 18 from 6 to 9 p.m. During “Summer Nights at Edison Ford,” visitors will be treated to music on the Ford lawn and have a chance to see a spectacular sunset over the Caloosahatchee River. Guests will also be able to stroll the grounds at their own pace, while practicing social distancing.
Guests may bring a lawn chair or blanket to relax and watch the sunset. Tickets will only be available online at EdisonFord.org. The museum and research laboratory will not be open.
