March Mystery Walk

March Mystery Walk; “Battle of the Arts”

Mystery Walk IV brings you Battle of the Arts! We have broken down this past year of Mystery Walks into 5 sections that consist of Bands, Djs, fire, art and dance. We have searched high and low to bring you the hottest Florida heavy weight Artist in their category, all together on one street. Downtown Fort Myers will be the battle grounds as we shut down first street and let these artists battle for Circus Arts United and River District Alliance Band of the year, DJ of the year, artist of the year, dance company of the year and fire performer of the year. The winner will take home the title, trophy and a hefty cash prize. On this night the crowd, you, will decide who is the champ until next year when each winner will return to compete and defend their title and trophy.

So mark your calendar and prepare for the battle of the arts, this will be a battle you will not forget!
