There were a lot of people at the Sanibel Community Center, trying to set up booths, etc for the Rotary Club Arts & Crafts Fair that is being held this weekend. The weather certainly wasn't helping them out any. Hopefully there will be nicer weather Saturday and Sunday. It is predicted to be mostly sunny and breezy with highs in the low to mid 60s.
You can see a lot of cars parked on the left of the photo. Seems as though most of the tourists were using the rainy afternoon for shopping at Periwinkle Place.
Tough afternoon for people preparing for the Arts & Crafts Fair.
The City of Sanibel has issued a Heavy Traffic Advisory for Saturday, February 13th and Sunday, February 14th. In addition to both Valentines Day and Presidents Day falling on the same weekend, two special events will be held on Periwinkle Way this weekend.
Heavy traffic is anticipated along Periwinkle Way from Casa Ybel Road to Tarpon Bay Road due to the following events:
The 27th Annual Rotary Club Arts & Crafts Fair held at the Sanibel Community Association, 2173 Periwinkle Way, on Saturday, February 13th & Sunday, February 14th.
The Farmer's Market being held at Tahitian Gardens, 1975 Periwinkle Way, on Sunday, February 14th.
If you are traveling off the island, it would be wise to add a little extra time.
