It's an Underwater Wonderland

It’s the time of the year again … and if you want to enjoy the spirit of the Holiday season, The Franklin Shops will be your destination on Art Walk night. Our window display It’s an Underwater Wonderland  has been created by the local sculptors Jeff and Dale Ocasio. The award winning artists host an art workshop right in front of The Franklin Shops, where they demonstrate their unique sculpting technique. The window installation features pieces from their FinFolk collection, which is Ocasiocasa’s daydream-like portrayal of aquatic life, hoping to shine a light on the well-being of the watery world and its inhabitants.

Book Signing: Take a Peek Inside Eagle Harriet's LIfe

During Art Walk, book lovers have the chance to meet author Ginnie Pritchett McSpadden and take a peek inside eagle Harriet’s life in her new book A Day with Harriet. The easy to read board book is perfect for kids of any age. From flying high in the skies over Florida to fishing in her favorite pond, all of the content in the book was inspired from real life events and images pulled directly from the famous Southwest Florida Eagle Cam live feed. Ginnie Pritchett McSpadden is the co-creator of the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam. Her family has been observing and educating viewers about bald eagles since 2012.

A Commitment to Soul with Billy Mether

It’s the night of the Soul Man at The Franklin Shops during Music Walk. Billy Meether grew up in Cape Coral, and at the age of 18 went off to the University of Central Florida to study music. Since then, Saxy Billy has traveled the world playing in over forty countries, performing in a wide variety of musical genres including Soul, Latin, Pop, Jazz, Blues and Electronic Dance Music. Billy’s strong commitment to Soul is his homage to the greats of the soul era … Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Sam and Dave.
