FORT MYERS, Fla. -- For the next few weeks, you can get into the holiday season spirit with Holiday Nights at the Edison and Ford Estates in Fort Myers.

The event features an impressive light show with more even more lights than last year. They also have new displays and decorations.

This year's theme is "River Reflection", and a lot of the decorations will incorporate nautical elements.

There are even some special guests, who will make appearances. "So a lot of the gardens and historic homes are lit up with historic decorations and things. And then a lot of new decorations too, like animated lights that are syched up to music and things like that, new technologies. But then we also have Santa here on select nights, family crafts, music, food vendors,” said a spokesman.

Additional areas of the property will be illuminated this year, including the Mysore Fig, one of the largest historic trees on the property.

The tree is filled with thousands of animated lights choreographed to holiday music.

It's $20 for adults.

The event ends December 30th.
