And for a comprehensive rundown of Halloween events in Punta Gorda, Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Naples, check out this list.

At least two of the ongoing events on that list above kick off this weekend. They are the Lakes Park Fall Festival in Fort Myers and Boo At The Zoo in Naples, In addition, there are several outdoor movies scheduled for the weekend. Yes, they are Halloween themed and at least one is good for the entire family. Details below.
